Like a lot of stories, the Easter story is dramatic. Like a lot of dramatic stories, it’s true. And like a lot of true stories it involves betrayal and death. But unlike any other story it ends – or really where it begins – with the resurrection of Christ. Jesus the Son of God was crucified on a cross, but he didn’t stay on the cross. He is alive!
We traveled to Jerusalem for Jesus’ Triumpful Entry, sit down for the Last Supper, prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane, discovered the sacrifice of Good Friday, and celebrated freedom from our sins at the empty tomb that first Easter morning. The story didn’t end there, Jesus returned to Heaven and gave us a task – to go and tell everyone about Jesus, which is the great commission.
