Jesus Dies on the Cross


Jesus died so that we can live forever with God.


Read the Bible


A group of important men who don't recognize that Jesus was sent by God and think he is just a troublemaker have Jesus arrested. He is taken to two different governmental rulers—Governor Pilate, and King Herod. Neither of them thinks Jesus is a criminal, but the crowd convinces them that Jesus should be killed. Jesus is cruelly nailed to a cross (a common way to execute criminals at that time), and his family and friends watch him die.


Think about it


Why did Jesus have to die? Because Jesus came to show the world how much God loves us! His death was an important part of God’s plan to save us from sin and give us a way to have a relationship with God. It was very hard for Jesus to go through that experience, but think about it: Jesus died so that we can live forever with God. He loves us that much!
