Jesus in the garden


Jesus and his friends went for a walk after supper.

They walked in a garden.

It was night and it was very dark.

Jesus told his friends to sit down and wait for him.

He wanted to pray in a quiet place.

Jesus knelt down to pray.

He was very sad and he was afraid.

He knew something bad was going to happen to him.

He knew that he was going to die.

He prayed to God, his Father.

His friends fell asleep.

Suddenly a lot of men came into the garden.

They had swords in their hands.

They came to get Jesus.

Judas was with them.

He had said he was Jesus’ friend but he was not.

He said, ‘Hello Jesus’.

The men with swords arrested Jesus.

They would not let him go.

Jesus said, ‘Why have you got swords?’

‘I am not a bad man.

I teach in church every day’.

They took Jesus away.

All his friends ran away. They were afraid.

Mark 14:32-50
