Sprite’s Easter holiday homework was to write an essay with the title ‘That’s what it’s all about!’ It really made me think! For Christians Easter is the celebration of the events that are at the very core of our faith – that Jesus died on the cross on Good Friday and rose again in accordance with the scriptures in order to reconcile mankind with God. It is best summed up by the ‘Gospel in a nutshell’ verse John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whosoever believes in Him should not die but have eternal life.
For Christians Easter = that’s what it’s all about!
Read all about it in The Holy Bible Matthew Chapters 27-28 Mark Chapters 15-16 Luke Chapters 23-24 John Chapters 19-21
