Jesus had a group of people who did not like Him very much - the Pharisees. The Pharisees were constantly trying to come up with riddles, questions, and other tricks to trap Jesus in His own words.
The Pharisees asked Jesus, “What is the greatest commandment?” They hoped to trick Jesus into giving an answer that would discredit Him in front of the crowd.
Instead, Jesus gave a very simple answer that is the blueprint for Christians today - “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind....Love your neighbor as yourself.”
In this Easter lesson, the children will learn all about how LOVE is what allowed Jesus to die on the cross. We must show that same LOVE to others!
