In Case the Take-Home-Page didn't make it home this week. This is what we talked about in RAKlets on March 29,2013: 

On the Cross - Jesus came to earth to die on the cross

March29

This week we saw the first part of the greatest story you’ll ever hear as we witness through John 18-19 Jesus being arrested, tried, beaten and then put on a cross to die. We were reminded that His death was to pay the price for our sin. And, as Jesus took His last breath and said, “It is Finished!” we remembered that no one took Jesus’ life from Him, but that He laid down His life for His people and by dying in our place He finished the work He had come to do. Last week ended with Jesus in a tomb and the disciples scared and confused.....but that was just the beginning of the story!

The last two weeks we were working through the book “The 1st Easter” to help us prepare for Easter. Make a mural/ timeline of the last week before Jesus died and came back to life, adding to it each day. The easiest way to do this might be to add a piece of paper each day! If you’re feeling really creative, consider getting some clay and making a 3D scene of each day. Read more about it on last weeks update!

If you want a Easter-Oriented-Craft-Activity this week, don't miss out on this great Booklet. Click here to download it. "How did God show His love? God showed His love by making the world..... God showed His love by sending Jesus to the world....God showed His love by Jesus dying in our place."

FAMILY-WORSHIP-TIME:

Here are some ideas for your family-worship this week. Read more about family worship here.

  • Day 1- Read Isaiah 53:3-12 - - This passage isn’t part of the book “the 1st Easter” but is a prophecy about Jesus and what He would do on the cross that was written more that 700 years before Jesus died on the cross. After reading through this passage, go back through “the 1st Easter” book and make a note of which verses from Isaiah 53 match up with each section of the Easter story.

**** For the next 3 days we’ll be finishing up the book “The 1st Easter” to help us prepare for Easter. Make a mural/ timeline of the last week before Jesus died and came back to life, adding to it each day. The easiest way to do this might be to add a piece of paper each day! If you’re feeling really creative, consider getting some clay and making a 3D scene of each day.

  • Day 2- Read Matthew 27:51 & Mark 15:38 ~ “Jesus Opened the Way to God the Father”
  • Day 3- Read Matthew 27:57-61, John 19:38-42, Luke 23:50-56, Mark 15:42-47 ~ “Jesus Was Buried”

  • Day 4- Read Matthew 28:1-10, Mark 16:1-8, Luke 24:1-12, John 20:1-9 ~ “Jesus is Alive”
  • Day 5- Take some time today to look back through the whole Easter story and think about how God planned all of this to rescue His people from sin. Read Genesis 3 as a reminder of why we all need to be rescued. The Bible tells us that ever since sin came into the world that we are all sinners in need of rescue. You can find that truth in Romans 3:10-12 & 23.
