As they led Jesus away, they grabbed Simon, a man from Cyrene, who was coming in from the countryside. They put the cross on his back and made him carry it behind Jesus.
How did Simon feel about having to carry the cross? Was he afraid? Angry? Sad? Or maybe thankful that he could help Jesus?
How do we feel about the cross of Jesus?
This idea is part of a complete Sunday School lesson on the Bible story of the crucifixion of Jesus (Matthew 27: 27-38)
