What is Easter About?

Pontius Pilot condemned Jesus to death for crimes He did not commit.

Jesus accepted His fate, trusting in God’s bigger plan.

Christ bore the weight of the world’s sins as He drew His last breaths on the cross. His body was removed from the wooden cross and mourned by His mother Mary and many of His followers.

His body was embalmed and placed in a tomb that was donated by a wealthy Jewish man named Joseph of Arimathea. The tomb was sealed by a large boulder and guards were placed at the door to prevent possible theft of Jesus’ body.

On the third day of His death (as the ancients counted the calendar), Mary Magdalene and the other women found the boulder of the tomb rolled away and Jesus was not there! What could this mean?

She ran to Simon Peter and brought him back to the tomb. There, they met an angel who told them not to worry. Jesus had risen from the dead at the will of His Father. Peter remembered the words Christ spoke in Galilee, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill Him, and on the third day He will be raised to life.” The disciples departed from the tomb knowing Jesus had risen at the will of God.

More than 500 people saw Jesus after He had been resurrected, including Jesus’ brother James and the Apostle Peter.

Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday is the conquering of evil, sin and death. It is the promise of eternal life with God in Heaven.

For God so loved the world, that He gave his only Son, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Have a blessed Resurrection Sunday! Your comments are welcome.

  1. Omg. I love this!! Thanks Carolyn. Thank God for Jesus! Happy Resurrection Sunday. Praises to our Almighty Lord.

    1. I am skeptical about sources that sell probate leads. I believe you can get that information for free from your local courthouse. That is probably what they’re doing and then they sell it. In my opinion, courses on how to buy probate properties are over-promised and over-priced. The same for lists. Buying a house in probate is not easy and you are bidding against experienced investors who have plenty of cash. Think about this: if buying probate was so profitable, why aren’t they doing it themselves instead of selling lists that they get for free?

  2. Thanks for that message Carolyn. I’ve been studying and blogging about the historicity of the resurrection lately, and, lo and behold, the literal resurrection of Jesus is the best explanation of the data that are acknowledged by most scholars.

    He is risen!
