Good Friday and Easter
The cross is the most well-known symbol for Christians. It’s the symbol of the horrible death of Jesus Christ. But that’s not all.
The New Testament tells the story of Jesus. He was preaching and teaching for a few years. Many people liked him, but also a lot of people did hate him. The last week of Jesus is quite disturbing. At the beginning of that week, people saw him as a hero. Within the week he was crucified as a criminal…
The movie begins with Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem where masses of people stood on the side applauding him. But things went differently. He was condemned as a criminal and died a horrible death on a wooden cross … Many people thought this was the end.
But it didn’t end. There’s a new life that begins on Easter morning. Because the tomb of Jesus is empty. He lives!
