Jesus died on the cross

Listening to the Bible


The CEV version is probably the most accessible for children, if they are able to read for themselves. You can find it online here.



  • What was the most important thing Jesus did on Earth?
  • Were the people in the story (the teachers of the law, the soldiers, the crowd) perfect? Why/Why not?
  • Why couldn’t the people in the story be with God before Jesus? What changed?
  • What should we do when we do the wrong thing (sin)?

You can download the script and discussion questions here.
