Key Point of Passage: Jesus’ followers watched as He was crucified with criminals and buried in a tomb.
Memory Verse: Jesus died and rose again (1 Thessalonians 4:14).
Questions for Discussion:
1) Jesus was nailed to a cross next to criminals who had done bad things. But had Jesus done anything wrong?
2) The criminals were being punished for their own sins. But for whose sin was Jesus dying?
3) Even the criminal who was sorry for his sin was forgiven and got to go to heaven with Jesus. Can anyone be forgiven by God if they turn to Jesus for forgiveness?
4) The Bible says Jesus was crucified and buried in a tomb. Was that the end of Jesus? Does anyone know what happened three days later? Yes. We’ll talk more about that next week!
