Focus on the Sunday Gospel for Palm Sunday.
Use this unit study to help teach children about Holy Week and that God wants us to be with Him heaven. This lesson is based on the account of the Passion of the Lord in Luke 22:14-23:56.
In this week’s Gospel, Jesus enters the Holy City, Jerusalem, for the last time. We then hear the account of the Passion and are reminded of God’s love for every single person. As we see the wretchedness of our sinful selves calling for the crucifixion of Jesus, we are also washed with God’s mercy and made to know that Jesus wants us to be with Him for eternity at all costs.
