This Easter I tried changing things up by dramatizing some of the important scenes leading up to and including Jesus' death and resurrection. It was a bit of work but so much fun. The kids really enjoyed being a part of the scenes. Before each scene we would pray and after every scene we'd sing a hymn.
Jesus was brought before Pontius Pilate. Pilate offered the angry crowd either Jesus or Barabbas--The crowd wanted Barabbas and what of Jesus? "Crucify Him!"
He was laid in the tomb and a large stone rolled in front.
