The Jesus Storybook Bible begins at the trial and tastefully leads us to the cross. It spends a lot of time emphasizing the innocence of Jesus and how everything that had happened was part of God's plan. We're reminded that "the full force of God's fierce anger at sin was coming down. On His own Son. Instead of His people. It was the only way God could destroy sin, and not destroy His children whose hearts were filled with sin (JSB, pg 306)."
After we finished the story, I removed the white cloth from around the cross, and wrapped it around my hand to show the kids how Jesus' body was wrapped for burial. I placed the cloth in a clay tomb that I had made earlier this week and put a "stone" over it's entrance. Then, we, like the disciples, walked away.
