Hi it’s me again, Harmony! And I am going to tell you about my day.
It is the last day before we go to our new home. We are in the car. And we have 2 hours and 13 min until we are to our last hotel. So, a couple of minutes ago Daddy asked me, “Harmony, name one person in the bible that had a story about their last stop before home.” Now you know that is a deep question. So, it took me a while to think….(me thinking).... Then finally I said, “Jesus”.
Jesus' last stop began with the supper with the disciples. During that time, He washed the desciples feet and told them, The greatest is the one who serves", like he did. Then He said to them, "this is the end. Tomorrow it will never be the same.” And Peter did not want to hear that. Then Jesus took some bread and wine and said, “this bread is my body and this wine is my blood. And then they all ate the bread and drank the wine.
LATER ON IN THE GARDEN.
Then all of a sudden, soldiers came into the garden to take Jesus. But, Peter did not want them to. So he took a soldiers sword and cut off one of the soldier's ears. Jesus said, “Peter why did you do that?” as he put back the soldiers ear. Then He let them take Him. The next afternoon they took him to Pilate and said, “We want to put this man on a cross, what should we do?” Pilate asked Jesus some questions then sent him to Herod. Herod, after asking him some questions, sent him back to Pilate. Then Pilate said, “I am willing to let either Barrabas go or Jesus go. Who should I let go? Then all the people started shouting, “ Barrabas, Barrabas!!!!!!!” So he let Barrabas go. After that they took Jesus and threw Him on the ground. They took off most of His clothes and started whipping Him and laughing at Him and said, “ If you are the king, stand up and save yourself!” After that, they had Him carry the cross up a steep hill all by Himself. Then Jesus was too weak to carry it. A soldier said to a man, “What is your name?” The man said, “Simon.” “Carry the cross for Jesus,” said the soldier. So Jesus and Simon walked up the hill. Then the soldier took Jesus, nailed and tied Him to the cross. And with that He died. They put him in Joseph’s tomb. He was there for 3 days and on the 3rd day, Mary, Mary Magdalene and Salome went to make sure Jesus didn’t stink. And they saw that the big boulder that used to be blocking the tomb was now open with an angel on top. And he said to them, “Why are you here? You won't find Jesus here. He has risen He is alive!!” The women could not believe what they had just heard. And from that day on, Jesus was alive for 40 more days. And now we have Easter to celebrate the day Jesus arose from the dead.
That was Jesus' last stop before home. And now we are doing ours. Love you all!!! So that is all for now. BYE!!!!!
