You’ll use this lesson 11 days before Easter. You’ll be using the second resurrection egg, which is light pink (color may vary) and will have silver coins on the inside.
Talk with your child about the story:
Do you remember yesterday how we learned that some people were happy to see Jesus? Well, there were some who did not like him and wanted to hurt him. Today we read a little bit about Judas, one of Jesus’ close friends. He ended up helping the leaders who did not like Jesus.
So, now its time to see what is inside our egg. What do you think it is going to be? Let’s open it and find out. Its coins. Think back to our story. Why do you think there are coins in this egg? Do you remember what Judas wanted for helping them? That’s right! Judas wanted them to pay him. Do you remember how much they gave Judas? 30 silver coins. Judas decided to take the silver coins and lead the leaders to Jesus. Do you think Judas was being a good friend to Jesus? Is it nice to hurt people? No, you’re right. Judas helped people who wanted to hurt Jesus, so he wasn’t being a very good friend.
