WHAT IS EASTER?
What do Christians Celebrate on Easter?
Christians believe according to Scripture, that Jesus came back to life, or was raised from the dead, three days after his death on the cross. As part of the Easter season, the death of Jesus Christ by crucifixion, is commemorated on Good Friday, always the Friday just before Easter. Through his death, burial and resurrection, Jesus paid the penalty for sin, thus purchasing for all who believe in him, eternal life in Christ Jesus.
“Easter is a time when we can reflect on and contemplate the meaning of the wondrous events of our salvation.”
