The Resurrection Story

Hello dear ones,

God's love for us was demonstrated through giving us His only Son, Jesus.  He died that we might receive forgiveness from sin, release from guilt, and eternal life through faith in Him.

Procession into Jerusalem
Matthew 21:6-11

Jerusalem stirred as Jesus entered the city.  "Who is this?" they asked.  The Crowds replied, "It's Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee."

Christ's Last Supper
Mark 14:17-25, Mark 14:29-31, John 13:3-9

As Jesus and the disciples sat around a table, He pointed out that one would betray Him  Distressed, each asked, "I'm not the one, am I?"

In the Garden of Gethsemane
Luke 22:39-51

At the Gethsemane, Jesus told the disciples to pray so that they would not be overcome by temptation then He walked away and prayed, "Father, if You are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from Me.  Yet I want Your will, not Mine."

A mob approached, led by Judas, one of His twelve disciples.  Judas came up to Jesus and greeted Him with a kiss.  Jesus said, "Judas, how can you betray Me, the Son of Man, with a kiss?"

Judas, the traitor

The Governor's Judgment
Matthew 27:11-32

Now Jesus stood before Pilate, the Roman Governor, who asked, "Are you the King of the Jews?"  Jesus replied, "Yes, it is as you say."

Pilate asked the crowd, "What crime did He commit?  The crowd just roared louder, "Crucify Him!"


Christ's Crucifixion & Death
Luke 23:32-43, Luke 23:50-56, John 19:25-30

Two criminals were led out with Jesus to a place where all three were crucified-He on the center cross, the criminals on either side.

Jesus said, "Father, forgive these people, because they don't know what they are doing."

The Resurrection of Christ
Matthew 27:62-66, Matthew 28:2-4, Luke 24:1-10, Luke 24:46-53

The priests remember that Jesus had said He would be raised from the dead after three days so they had asked Pilate to seal the tomb until the third day to prevent Jesus' disciples from stealing His body and saying He came back to life.

Early in the morning there was a suddenly a great earthquake because an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and rolled aside the stone.

One day all of the pain, fear, death, disease, and war will be gone.  Our joy and hope will be complete, and all because of the penalty that Christ paid for us.
Revelation 21:4
