Bible story: ‘Jesus and the prisoner Barabbas’ - sketchboard

Introduction:
"Barabbas was listening hard.  The crowd went quiet and he could hear a man's voice speaking.  The next thing he heard was a great shout "BARABBAS, BARABBAS, WE WANT BARABBAS!"  (Get the children to shout it out, really loudly).  "Wonderful!"  thought Barabbas. "It must be my mates, come to get me out of prison!"  He began to feel much more cheerful.  But then the crowd went quiet again, and again the man spoke.  He couldn't hear Pilate's words, but Pilate was asking "What do you want me to do with Jesus?"

Barabbas
