We are beginning a new unit on Jesus’ death and resurrection. The question for this unit is, “How is Jesus the perfect King? Jesus perfectly rules over the universe as the King of Kings.”  Our memory verse for this unit is Revelation 5:13 (NIV), “Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!”  Try memorizing the verse as a family. (Preschoolers will memorize the bolded portion.)

This week, we will be learning about events surrounding Jesus’ trial that led to his death. We will see that Jesus was unfairly sentenced to die although He did no wrong. Jesus was the perfect substitute for us, dying on the cross for our sins and rising from the dead. Everyone who trusts in Jesus has forgiveness and life with God forever. Only the perfect sacrifice of God’s own Son could lead to our salvation. Despite our unworthiness, Christ remains worthy and invites us into His promise of everlasting life.
