Easter

Easter is a springtime festival; Easter Day is a Sunday in March or April. It is the main feast of the Christian year.

It was on Easter Sunday that Jesus rose from death. Jesus had told the disciples before he was arrested that he would be crucified and on the third day he would rise from the dead. Sunday was the third day from Good Friday. This can be found in The Bible, Matthew chapter 20 verses 18-20.

No one went to the guarded tomb on the Saturday, as it was the Jewish holy day. On the Sunday morning Mary, and later some of Jesus' disciples, went to His tomb and discovered that it was empty. They thought that someone must have stolen Jesus' body. Then, Jesus showed Himself to them, and spoke to them. He was alive. This account can be found in The Bible, Mark Chapter 16, Luke chapter 24 and John chapter 20.
