Easter Sunday – Jesus has risen!
Activity: Easter egg hunt – chat about why we celebrate Easter with hollow eggs. How the egg represents the empty tomb but also symbolises new life.
Discuss: How has Jesus’ resurrection changed the world? Will you let it change you?
Here is a short video for children: https://vimeo.com/channels/1551170/397067880
Activity: For older children and adults:
Do you struggle to believe in the resurrection? Here are 7 explanations that people give:
- Jesus was not dead
- Disciples were hallucinating
- Disciples lied / conspiracy
- The truth was distorted over time / legend
- There was an imposter Jesus
- Disciples were influenced/bribed
- Jesus was resurrected
Watch these videos presented by a retired Cold Case Detective (who was an atheist before he investigated the resurrection). He examines each of these possibilities and explains why no.7 is the only reasonable conclusion.
