Why Is Easter History So Important To Us Today?

Easter History is so extremely beautiful and spiritual! Learning the answers to the above question has been such a wonderful & eye-opening experience for me & my kids!

Jesus’ return from death is called the Resurrection. According to the scriptures, Jesus’ tomb was empty 3 days after his death. His followers saw him & talked to him after this. Christians therefore believe that they too can receive new life after death. Praise God!! Easter is the celebration of this belief.
