The Story of King Jesus: Good Friday

SOKJ-good-friday-crucifixion

Jesus did good things everywhere he went.
He healed the sick. He fed the hungry.
He rescued people from all sorts of problems.

Jesus did everything God wanted.

But some people still didn’t want to do things God’s way.
They didn’t want Jesus to be their king.
They wanted to be in charge for themselves.

So one day, some powerful people decided to stop Jesus
before he could take away their power.

They arrested Jesus. They took off his clothes.
They nailed him to a wooden cross
and watched him die.

Jesus never fought back. He never raised a sword.
He never even raised a finger.
