John 12:12-16

Starting activities

Jesus had many friends who followed him. Jesus was their leader and they listened to what Jesus said.
Point to your listening ears. Now listen closely!

Jesus told his friends to stay close to him and walk with him because he is their light.
He will show them the way to go. Do you remember our song about walking in the light?
Let’s get up now and sing our song with our voices and actions.

Jesus friends were very excited to follow Jesus.

They thought He was the KING! God’s King for his people.  A King who would love them and keep them safe.  Jesus friends called him King Jesus!

Choose someone to be King Jesus and follow them as you listen to ‘Follow, follow’ (Emu Music)

This is the Easter story in a country and western song y’all! The first verse and chorus cover Jesus and Palm Sunday (1:10). Keep viewing and you’ll get the crucifixion and resurrection too.
