Easter or Resurrection day as it is also known amongst Christians is one of the biggest religious festivals according to the Christian calendar. This day is celebrated each year to commemorate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Easter story is by far the most well known and most repeated story from the bible. For many Christian groups Easter is the turning point in the history of Christianity, as it brings with it the hope of redemption, salvation and new life. Easter is always celebrated on a (Easter Sunday) Sunday and is one of the most well attended of all services or masses. According to the gospels, Jesus Christ was crucified on a Friday (good Friday) and resurrected from his tomb on the third day of his crucifixion (Easter Sunday). It is believed that Jesus Christ died at the cross of Calvary to pay for the sins of man and give eternal life to those who believe in him.
The festival of Easter also coincides with the coming of spring that brings with it greenery, new life and a rejuvenated world. This day also celebrates the ending of the 40 day period of fasting called the Lenten season.
There are many scripture passages in the bible that tell us about the story of Jesus’ death at the cross of Calvary, his burial and resurrection. These accounts can be found in the following scripture passages Matthew 27:27-28:8; Mark 15:16-16:19; Luke 23:26-24:35; and John 19:16-20:30.
