Bible Passage:

Matthew 28:1-10; John 20:1-10

Jesus took on the sins of the world when He died on the cross. He took these sins on Himself so that He could pay the world’s sin debt. He was crucified and died on the cross and then buried in a tomb. His death was not the end to the hope that He brought the world. He didn’t stay dead in the tomb. He rose to life again on the third day and defeated death. He’s alive today and because He’s alive, those who repent and believe in Him have the hope of eternal life after their earthly death.


On Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday, we take time to uniquely pause, reflect on, and celebrate Jesus. He lived the sinless life that we could not, He died the death that we deserved to die, and He rose again to conquer death and the grave so that we can have new life in Him.
