Walking through Holy Week: Easter Day


Easter Sunday comes at the end of Holy Week, which in the Bible is a busy week when lots of really important things happened. Some of these times were very difficult.

For Christians, Easter Sunday is a celebration because they believe that Jesus came back from the dead and there is the hope of new life.

Bible reading

Mary Magdalene stood crying outside the tomb. She was still weeping, when she stooped down and saw two angels inside. They were dressed in white and were sitting where Jesus’ body had been. One was at the head and the other was at the foot. The angels asked Mary, ‘Why are you crying?’
She answered, ‘They have taken away my Lord’s body! I don’t know where they have put him.’
As soon as Mary said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there. But she did not know who he was. Jesus asked her, ‘Why are you crying? Who are you looking for?’
She thought he was the gardener and said, ‘Sir, if you have taken his body away, please tell me, so I can go and get him.’
Then Jesus said to her, ‘Mary!’
She turned and said to him, ‘Rabboni.’ The Aramaic word ‘Rabboni’ means ‘Teacher’.
Jesus told her, ‘Don’t hold on to me! I have not yet gone to the Father. But tell my disciples that I am going to the one who is my Father and my God, as well as your Father and your God.’ Mary Magdalene then went and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord. She also told them what he had said to her.
John 20:11–18
