On Easter Sunday we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. We shout Alleluia! He is Risen! He is Truly Risen! Jesus opened the gates of Heaven for all of us!
So much of what we have been studying is in the Apostle’s Creed. Do you remember it from earlier lessons? If you don't, it is above. Take a look at it.
We know that Jesus suffered. How did He suffer? After the Last Supper Jesus experienced His Agony in the Garden. Then He was captured. Then Scourged at the Pillar. Then He was Crowned with Thorns. And then forced to carry His own cross. Finally He was Crucified.
Jesus died on the cross and was buried. He then went to Limbo. Limbo is the place where the souls of those who had died before Jesus came were. Even though the Creed says “Hell,” it was really Limbo that Jesus went to in order to let the good people know that the gates of Heaven were opened.
Now the most important part! On the third day He rose again. This is Easter Sunday! On Easter Sunday Jesus rose from the dead. This is a time for great rejoicing! He proved to everyone that He really is God the Son. Let us be glad and rejoice! Alleluia!
First Jesus came to Mary Magdalene. Imagine how Mary Magdalene felt when she ran to the tomb and found that Jesus wasn’t there. At first she was upset. Then she saw two angels. They asked her why she was crying. She thought someone had stolen Jesus’ body. She was worried about where they had taken Him. When a man came over to her and asked her why she was crying. She didn’t recognize Him and thought He was a gardener. But imagine how happy she must have felt when she realized it was Jesus! She was so overcome with happiness that she threw herself at His feet. Jesus told her not to touch Him. He also said that He was going to His Father. Mary should go and tell His Apostles what she had seen right away. Of course she ran to the Upper Room where they Apostles were.
On this same day, Jesus appeared to the Apostles in the Upper Room. Even though the doors were locked, Jesus suddenly appeared to them. The Apostles had been very upset since Jesus died, because they didn’t understand what all of Jesus’ suffering had meant. They were also very sad and scared because Jesus had died. Imagine how happy they must have felt to see Jesus standing there in front of them in His glorified body! Jesus showed them His wounds in His hands and His feet and His side. They knew it was Him and they were amazed.
Also on the same day, two of Jesus’ disciples were walking along a road. ... Please purchase this lesson to continue learning.
