Jesus Beard Craft- Isaiah 50:6 and Matthew 26:67

Jesus Beard Craft 

Isaiah 50:6  I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

Matthew 26:67  Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,

 Jesus was beaten, spit on, hit in the face, his beard was plucked, and eventually was put to death. This was all done for a reason. It was prophesied that he would come into the world and die for our sins. He made a way for us so we could be forgiven. Let's not forget what Jesus went through for us so we could go free....
  • Construction paper (brown or black)
  • Stick glue
  • Scissors
  • Hole-punch
  • String
Fold a sheet of construction paper in half horizontally. (hamburger fold)  Draw a month so it is centered two inches from the short edge and and 1.5 inches from the long edges. (See picture)  Stack the two sheets together and cut through both layers to cut out the mouth.  Glue the two sheets together by running the glue stick just at the edges of the mouth.  At this point you can choose to round off the edges.   Use the hole-punch to make holes on both sides of the mouth. Cut strips from the top and bottom so they come to about one half inch of the mouth.  

Using the flat edge of the scissors, curl the strips the way as you would curl ribbon. Do this part carefully so you do not accidentally tear off some of the strips.  (Don’t ask me how I know.)    Bend the top curls down to make the mustache.
Tie strings in the holes.  Place the strings over the top of the child’s ears and tie in the back.  

Matthew 26:57  And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled.

Matthew 26:58  But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest's palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end.

Matthew 26:59  Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;

Matthew 26:60  But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,

Matthew 26:61  And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.

Matthew 26:62  And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?

Matthew 26:63  But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.

Matthew 26:64  Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Matthew 26:65  Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.

Matthew 26:66  What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.

Matthew 26:67  Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,

Matthew 26:68  Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?
