Season of the Church Year: Lent (Liturgical Color: Purple)
Story in Scripture: Matthew 26: 17- 30“This is the 6th Sunday in the Season of Lent. Remember, Jesus was born as a little baby to his Mother Mary and Father Joseph. When he was a little boy, his parents lost him in the big city of Jerusalem, but they found him in the Temple, teaching. Later, his cousin John baptized him. He also spent a lot of time in the Wilderness, learning how strong God’s story is and how strong Jesus would have to be. Last week, we learned about ways that Jesus helped other people. Today, we will talk about what happened next.
Jesus went to Jerusalem for the last time. It was the time of the Passover. Look at this picture… Jesus is holding something very special. It looks like he is saying something important. Let’s leave this picture for now, but we will talk about it more very soon.
