The Wrong Way Round

God made everything the wrong way round on one day to put everything to right way round in eternity.

The day Jesus died, everything was the wrong way round. The sky went dark in the middle of the day, all Jesus’ friends betrayed him and a judge found an innocent man guilty.

So why do we call it Good Friday? Was there more going on?

Our world is broken, our hearts are imperfect and we were separated from God. But Jesus’ death reversed everything! Good Friday was the wrong way round so our world could be fixed, imperfect people could be saved and we can be reunited with God – forever.

Creative watercolour illustrations and a thoughtful script will help all ages understand what happened when Jesus died.
