Passion Week: Wednesday

“I am telling you this now, before it takes place, that when it does take place you may believe that I am He.”  John 13:19

There are predictions in the Old Testament that are starting to come true in Jesus’ life.  Listed below are some of the predictions.  I would challenge you to find the objects in brackets and use them as a visual aids when talking about this day with your children.  If you own a set of Resurrection Eggs most of the items will be in those eggs.  Otherwise, keep it fresh with real size items around your house.

Table Talk & Possible Activities

*  He knew His death would be by crucifixion (John 3:14, 12:32,33).
[cross and/or nails]

*  He knew the disciples would meet a man with a water pitcher (Luke 22:10).
[water pitcher]

*  He knew that He would be betrayed by Judas for money (John 6:64, 13:1, and Matthew 26:2, 21).

*  He knew Peter would deny Him three times (Matthew 26:34).

*  He knew the disciples would be scattered (Matthew 26:31, John 16:32).  It would also be a good idea to refresh your children’s memory on who Jesus flock is (refer to the Palm Sunday post).
[seeds to scatter]

*  He knew He would be crucified not stoned (John 12:32).
[whip, nails, cross]

If you do not have the official Resurrection Eggs you can make your own set by going to my Easter board on Pinterest, there are so many different versions you can do yourself.
