This little three minute video from Pursue God would be a good discussion starter or introduction to a lesson on the Trial in any workshop: Top 5 List: the Trial of Jesus

Main points:

  • Jesus was on trial even though he didn't do anything wrong
  • Peter stayed outside even though he was Jesus' best friend
  • The Jews lied about Jesus even though that was against the law
  • Jesus didn't save himself even though he was strong enough to do it
  • Sometimes life isn't fair but God is still always in charge


There is a K-1 lesson plan pdf at the video link above that includes a coloring sheet if your kids like to color while discussing things.
