“I passed on to you what I received. And this was the most important: that Christ died for our sins, as the Scriptures say; that he was buried and was raised to life on the third day as the Scriptures say; and that he showed himself to Peter and then to the twelve apostles.” I Corinthians 15:3-5
Jesus died on the cross for you and me;
He was lifted high on a tree called Calvary.
He suffered great pain and agony so we could be free.
Jesus loved us so much He was willing to be beaten and scorned.
So His little ones could be re-born, He came back from the dead
On that happy third day.
Jesus showed Himself to Peter and His eleven friends
So they would know He was not dead.
He did not want them to be sad.
Finally, He told them He must go home to be with Father–
God our Dad.
Who can you tell today that Jesus died and rose again?
