Easter Story

Jesus had been traveling to the town of Jeruselm when the people of a town came out  and wanted to meet Jesus. They began to gather around and praise God and Jesus. This upset Pharisees. The next morning the enemies came to Jesus and placed a crown of thorns on his head. Then they nailed his hands and feet to the cross.
Jesus’ followers stood sadly by watching as Jesus hung on the cross dying. Just before the sun was starting to go down Jesus’ followers noticed that he was no longer breathing so they went to Pharisees and asked if they could take Jesus’ body and bury him. Pilates agreed and they took Jesus wrapped his body in clean cloths and placed him into the tomb to bury him. As Pharisees  started thinking about Jesus he remembered Jesus saying that he would rise again after three days. Pharisees thought this might be true so he placed a large stone in front of the tomb and placed guards at the tomb to keep a watchful eye.
The next day Mary and some other followers went to the tomb to place spices and perfume on Jesus’ body. When they arrived they found the stone had been moved and there was an angle inside the tomb. The angel spoke to Mary and told her that Jesus was gone and that he had risen. She told Mary to go tell the other disciples that Jesus had risen from the dead.

We have learned that Jesus died on the cross because He loves us and forgives us our sins. We know that he died and rose, the same way you can bury a seed and it will rise from the ground.
