Whether you attend church on a regular basis or you only attend on special occasions, you likely know at least a few details about Easter. For most people, Easter is about mourning the death and celebrating the resurrection of Jesus.
For others, it’s a day to enjoy with children and family members along with the Easter Bunny, baskets, and eggs. There are many ways that you can celebrate Easter, but here are a few details about the meaning behind the holiday.
Easter is celebrated in most churches as a way to remember the crucifixion of Jesus on the cross. It’s a holiday when people can celebrate Jesus’ resurrection and his ascension into heaven. Because of the resurrection, those who believe that he died for their sins and rose from the grave are granted eternal life with the Lord.
Another factor about Ester is that the resurrection verifies the preachings that Jesus performed while he was on earth. In the event that Jesus was killed and was not resurrected, then His teachings would have been false. Since Jesus did not stay in the grave, it confirmed that He was the Son of God.
