Wednesday 27th



The Cleansing of the Temple.


Last week you looked at Palm Sunday, today you are continuing your work on Holy Week (the week that leads up to Easter) by looking at an event that takes place on the Monday of that week: the cleanings of the temple. 


Before you begin, I want you to think about what Christians believe Jesus is like, what impression you have of him as a person from other stories you know. Is he kind? Is he loving? What words would you associate with him. 


Below I have linked you to the same video we used in class (beware, a man pops up in the middle of the story! Skip past him!). I've uploaded the comic strips just to save you hunting for them. Create a comic strip of this story from the Bible.


Finally, think about how Jesus acts in this story. Does it surprise you? Was it out of character?
