Lesson Review – Matthew 27:27-61 – The Death of Christ


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Matthew 26:69-75 – Peter Denies Jesus.

This is lesson 38 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 116 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 38 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

“Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sins.” Hebrews 9:22

“He (Jesus) himself bore our sins in his body on the tree…” 1 Peter 2:24

“It is finished.” John 19:30
The good news, the gospel, is that Jesus bore our sins on the cross.

Questions For You Kids

Why did Jesus die on the cross? 

Jesus took the punishment for our sins and died in our place so that we can spend eternity with God in heaven. Note: Use this question to help the children understand the gospel message.

What did Jesus say to God the Father on the cross?

“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

Why did Jesus say this?

Jesus was experiencing God the Father’s holy anger toward sin.

Why is this important for us?

All sin must be punished. Jesus took the punishment for our sin so that we do not have to face God’s wrath. Those who trust in Jesus’ atonement have no need to fear the wrath of God.

What are the three most important words Jesus spoke on the cross before he died?

“It is Finished.”

Jesus was talking about God’s punishment for our sin.
