Matthew 26 – Embracing Calvary Story – Storytellers Bible Project

Devastating Destination – tears, Jesus, road, cross, cloud – Let me share a story with you about courage. Jesus took his disciples to an olive grove and prepared for his crucifixion.

Sleeping Watchmen – disciple & tree – During these hours of intense prayer and grief, Jesus returned to find his disciples asleep, though he had asked them to keep watch and pray.

Prophesied Betrayal – Jesus, path, soldier, money bag – Jesus woke up his disciples. Judas arrived, paid by priests to betray him. Jesus boldly went to be arrested by soldiers.
