Passion Week brought the culmination of Jesus’s work here on earth. The lesson begins with Mary anointing Jesus with perfume and then Judas making a deal to betray Jesus. It continues with Jesus entering Jerusalem on a donkey and later throwing money changers out of the temple. Finally, students will learn about how He celebrated Passover with the disciples and then was arrested, tried, tortured, and crucified. Jesus’s death and resurrection were God’s way of paying our penalty for sin, redeeming us, and providing a way for us to have eternal life with Him.Lesson Objectives

As you proceed through this lesson have the following question in mind.
Reflect on how it feels when someone gives us something we don’t deserve—or doesn’t give us a punishment that we do deserve. Have you ever won a prize simply because your name was chosen? Have you ever won a game even though you played terribly? Did your parents ever give you a gift even though you were disobedient or should have bought it for yourself? Did your parents ever decide not to punish you even though you deserved it? Did a friend ever stay friends with you even though you treated him or her wrongly? How did it feel?
