Essential Teachers notes:
We can forget our influence as established members of a community. Too often we glorify the those who travel to ‘spread the faith’ and loudly proclaim the special relationship God has with the poor and suffering. All that doesn’t mean God does not also have a special role for the established and secure. To be like Lydia and change a community. To be like Lydia and host. But, perhaps, not to be quite as bossy as Lydia was!

Tell this story or a similar one of your choice from a favourite bible translation or story book. This version is supplied for inspiration, feel free to omit or embellish to give it your personal voice.

Witnesses to the crucifixion | Story

 
Witnesses to the crucifixion | StoryIf you want the story cards then please click on the image for the pdf in colour or HERE for the pdf in black and white

Today’s heroes are Salome, the beloved disciple and the centurion.

Essential Teachers notes:
Today’s story comes with an option on how to deliver.
Start by gathering the children in a circle and putting as large a cross as you can find in the middle. Explain that today we are going to talk about what happened when Jesus was on the cross. It’s a sad part of Jesus’s story but we know that it’s not the end of Jesus’s story. The witnesses to the event did not know this though!

1. Split the large group into 3 small groups and give each group one of the accounts. Gather and share after 10 minutes of group discussion.
2. As a whole group use three actors to read the three accounts.
3. With older children hand out one of the story cards and have the children read them individually. Give them a moment to be quiet before discussing as a large group. Repeat process with the next character.

Main Passage : Matthew 27, Luke 23, John 19, Mark 15.
