While bunnies and eggs dominate the American easter culture each year, the resurrection is far and away the true meaning of our Spring celebration. It might be a good idea to have “resurrection conversations” with family and friends, conversations rooted in Passover (when Jesus was killed) and the first day of the week (when Jesus was raised from the dead).”
Did you know that Christ told many people He was going to be killed?
Did you know that for 40 days after He was raised from the dead He appeared to hundreds (perhaps thousands) of people? At one point this included more than 500 people at one time (1 Corinthians 15:3-9).
Did you know that when Jesus died, graves split open and dead people came out and walked around Jerusalem?
Nice! We have a whole year to prep for the next bunny season. Hope you enjoyed the ham.
