Easter Holiday Lessons from the Bible




The Easter Story
The Easter Story in the Bible is recorded in the books of Matthew chapter 26 to 28, Mark chapter 15 to 16, Luke chapter 22 to 24 and John chapters 17 to 20.

This Easter Story is commemorated by the Holy Week which includes the following days:


Palm Sunday
Palm Sunday is commemorated on the Sunday before Easter Sunday.

It remembers the day when Jesus went to Jerusalem riding on a donkey while people praised Him while singing, "Blessed is He who comes int he name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest." (Matthew 21:9) Hosanna means "save us" and the people thought He had come to save them politically but He was doing it spiritually.

Therefore Palm Sunday is a good day to praise God for sending His Son Jesus Christ to save us spiritually by dying on the cross so that we could get eternal life.

Maundy Thursday
Maundy Thursday remembers the day when Jesus shared the Passover meal with His disciples. It is commemorated on the Thursday before Easter Sunday.

Maundy Thursday is also a good day to sanctify your home and plead the Blood of Jesus over your home so that death from Coronavirus and other causes as well as destruction from all sources can pass over your home. Click here to read the blog post on How to Sanctify Your Home.

Maundy Thursday is also a good day to remind yourself of the good things that God has done for you because the Israelites celebrated the Passover to remind themselves of when God delivered them from slavery in Egypt. 

Therefore thank God for all the blessings He has bestowed on you in your life. As you do this, you will note the Importance of Keeping A Book Of Blessings that you can read as an individual or as a family at times like this.

Good Friday
Good Friday remembers the day when Jesus was tortured and crucified on the cross. It is commemorated on the Friday before Easter Sunday.

Jesus fulfilled His life's purpose when He died and the cross and therefore this is also a good day to examine ourselves and determine if we are fulfilling our life's purpose.

Holy Saturday
Holy Saturday remembers the day when Jesus' body was lying in the tomb and it is the final day of the Holy Week.

Holy Saturday is a good day to remind yourself not to be discouraged regardless of all the problems you are currently facing because it is not over until God says it is over. This is because Jesus' enemies may have rejoiced because they had seen him being beaten, carrying the cross, being crucified on it and his dead body being removed from the cross and buried in a tomb which they even put a seal on. However it was not over for Jesus because when the time that God had determined, He would resurrect, He resurrected.

Therefore fight any discouragement you may be feeling right now. To help you do so read the book How to Fight Discouragement with Bible Verses and the blog post Devices of the Devil - Discouragement.

Easter Sunday
Easter Sunday remembers the day when Jesus rose from the dead. 

This is the day to celebrate the true meaning of Easter which is that believers of Jesus will receive eternal life in Heaven.

This is because Jesus is Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29) and He died on the cross as the sacrificial lamb who took away the sins of the world. 

By resurrecting on Easter Sunday, Jesus overcame death, which is separation from God because of our sins and thus He enabled all who believe in Jesus and his death and resurrection to receive the gift of eternal life in heaven because we are no longer separated by our sins from God.

Therefore celebrate this great gift that God has given us through His Son Jesus Christ.

Easter Sunday is also a great day to remind yourself that the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead also lives in you because it is written The Spirit of Him who raised Jesus Christ from the dead dwells in you. (Romans 8:11)
