Primary 7, Lesson 32: The Crucifixion and Burial of Jesus Christ

He willingly gave his life so every person who has ever lived, or will ever live, will live again because of his great love for us.
Physical death is part of Heavenly Father’s plan and that Heavenly Father, in His great mercy, sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to overcome death. Through Christ’s death and resurrection, we have all been rescued from physical death. We will die, but we will be resurrected.

Before Christ was put on the cross, the soldiers whipped Jesus. They put a purple robe on Him and a crown of thorns and called him the King of the Jews. But they did this all to mock and make fun of Jesus. The soldiers took Jesus to a hill and a man named Simon of Cyrene carried His cross. They then nailed His hands and feet to the cross and lifted it up. Jesus then prayed and asked Heavenly Father to forgive the soldiers because they didn't know that He was the Savior. Jesus asked the Apostle John to take care of His mother, Mary. Christ suffered on the cross for many hours and darkness came over the land. And after much suffering Jesus' spirit left His body and He died. After He died, the Roman soldiers threw a spear at His side, they were scared because it was dark and an earthquake came and broke big rocks, a veil in the temple also tore in two, they then said, "Truly, this is the Son of God."

One of Jesus' disciples named Joseph begged Pilate for Jesus' body and he wrapped Jesus' body in a white cloth and placed him inside of his tomb. Joseph then rolled a big rock in front of the tomb and left.
