Greetings, teachers! It’s time for the end game of Jesus’ life (or should I say, His first physical life) here on earth. Starting with the resurrection of Lazarus, we’ll see how the Jewish and Roman leaders, and even some of His own disciples, turned against Jesus.
But that was all part of God’s plan because Jesus’ mission was to die in our place. And that wasn’t the end of the story, of course. God brought Jesus back to life, and someday, Jesus will return and bring all of us back to life too!
Each of the 15 lessons in this volume has games, crafts, and other activities to help you teach the stories and to help the kids apply the message. I’m also including a list of resources you might want to add to the lessons to make them that much better.

You don’t need anything extra to use the lessons. I will, however, provide some suggestions you might find helpful. You can use these resources in addition to or instead of the ideas I’ve provided.
Here are the resources I recommend for the entire series. I’ll list story-specific resources at the end of each lesson or the beginning of each section.
