It is Easter again

Christ has risen

I am posting this just a few hours before the start of the great redemption drama most often called ‘Easter’.

Just after 6 pm on a Thursday evening close to 2,000 years ago, the Lord Jesus Christ met with His disciples to celebrate Passover with them for the last time. About 15 hours later, at 9 am Friday morning, Roman soldiers nailed Him to a cross. Six hours after that, He gave up His spirit for the redemption of lost humanity. On the third day, before dawn at 6 am on Sunday, Jesus Christ rose bodily from the tomb as victor over death and as the living saviour for all who place their trust in Him. Hallelujah!

Here is a suggested reading plan for the next few days:

    Thanks Chris. Don’t know why but I never thought about Jesus being nailed to the cross so early in the morning. Another 2 hours, 2000 years ago, the biggest Showdown in the history of mankind happened. Thank God He came for sinners like me.
