Christians all over the world celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. On this blog, we have explored Easter Events within the Lake Conroe community and looked at two different kid-friendly Easter activities that point children to Jesus. If you are looking for a great way to teach your children or grandchildren about Good Friday and/or Easter Sunday, then look no further. Let’s teach them in a way that is engaging for them—with an animated video by the Bible Project. Additionally, if you are wondering what Easter celebrates, then this information is also for you.
Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday with Jesus entering the city of Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. The below video starts with this occurence, which fulfilled prophesy from Zechariah. Good Friday marks the day that Jesus Christ laid down His life on the cross. It was not “good” that He was crucified, but God’s plan to redeem His people required the perfect sacrifice. Only the Son of God could be the perfect sacrifice. And, it is “good” that Jesus made a way that we can be reconciled to our Holy Father and Creator. Without His death, we would never have hope.
After Jesus’ death, He was buried quickly in Joseph of Arimethea’s tomb. On the third day after His death, Jesus rose from the grave. If you are trying to figure out how there are three days between Friday afternoon to Sunday morning, here is an interesting and informative article, which explains how Jews historically counted days. Easter Sunday, a.k.a. Resurrection Sunday, is a celebration that Jesus Christ rose from the dead. He was victorious over death. He lives and He reigns! Christians do not worship a dead God, but a living and all-powerful One.
