Jesus in Rome

Week 14: Jesus in Rome

View:  All Grades:

The Miracle Maker DVD (This is one of the most biblically accurate DVDs I’ve ever seen of the life of Jesus.  It’s excellent!)

Discuss:

  • How do you think most Jews felt about the Romans? (didn’t like them)
  • How did most Romans feel about the Jews? (didn’t like them)
  • What kind of Messiah were the Jews look for? (military leader)
  • How was Jesus similar to what they were looking for?  How was he different? (had amazing power; wonderful teacher; performed many miracles; did not want to destroy the Romans; preached love and forgiveness; spoke of man’s sin and motives of man’s heart; spoke of heavenly kingdom — not earthly kingdom)
  • What miraculous signs did Jesus do? (healed many inside and out, drove out demons, people’s hearts changed)
  • Which of Jesus’s parables did you enjoy the most?  Why? (answers will vary)
  • Who betrayed him?  Why? (Judas, Jesus was not the man he hoped he would be; wanted money)
  • What did the Romans do to serious criminals? (crucified them)
  • Why were the Jewish priests jealous of Jesus? (he had such a great following and he exposed the wickedness of their hearts)
  • Why did Jesus really die? (to take away our sins)
  • How do we know Jesus rose from the dead? (empty tomb, cloths lying there)

 Activities: 

 K – 8: Optional Bible memory verses:

  • John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
  • John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
