Object lesson - Jesus on the cross: ‘Do not weep for me, weep for yourselves’


A light hearted way to introduce a discussion on this difficult text

On the road to Golgotha there are women standing crying. Jesus tells them not to cry for him, but for themselves, for Jerusalem. Jesus knows that in forty years the whole of Jerusalem will be destroyed and many people will lose their lives.

This idea is part of a complete Sunday school lesson on the Easter Bible story in Luke 23:26-56.
