More Questions for Your Family:

If you want to spend more time talking about what you learned, here are a few more questions.

 

      • Before Jesus was arrested, he prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane. His prayer to God was full of sadness. He knew that he was going to suffer and die, and even though he had the power to change what was about to happen, he didn’t. Why not? What does that teach us about Jesus and his love for us?
      • Judas was a disciple of Jesus who betrayed Jesus. Later, we learn that Peter, another disciple, denied knowing Jesus three times! Even later, after Jesus rose again, his disciple Thomas doubted the news until he saw Jesus and felt his wounds. These were men who gave up everything to follow Jesus, and even they had trouble following him and believing him. But Jesus and the Holy Spirit filled them with belief. Can you think of a time it was hard to follow Jesus? (Parents, this is a great opportunity to share with your kids about your own faith journey! Faith isn’t always easy and kids will learn so much from your own experiences with God.)
