Jesus Dies Story 

Matthew 27:45-56

Final Hour – cross, Jesus shouting – Let me tell you a story about what happened when Jesus died on the cross.

Perfect Sacrifice – cross – Jesus paid it all for us. His body was beaten and nailed to a wicked instrument of torture and death. Our Savior cried out in agonizing pain and took upon himself the sins of all mankind. Jesus saved the world!

Temple Curtain – torn veil – The curtain in Jerusalem’s holy temple had separated God from people for thousands of years. When Jesus died, God tore the veil apart forever.

Faith Response – soldier, faith – Witnesses saw many wonders after Jesus died: an earthquake and resurrections. A soldier guarding Jesus believed that he was God’s Son.
