Bible Lesson 29: Easter
Memory Verse: Isaiah 53:5 But he was pierced because of our rebellion, crushed because of our iniquities; punishment for our peace was on him, and we are healed by his wounds.
- There is no correlation between the secular tradition and the Christian celebration of Easter. It is important to remember the reason for celebrating Easter– Jesus died to give believers salvation.
- Jesus washed the disciples’ feet at the Last Supper to exemplify love, selflessness, and submission. Christians should serve and encourage the people.
- Christians remember Jesus’ sacrifice by taking part in the Lord’s Supper or Communion.
- At the Last Supper, Jesus foretold Judas’ betrayal and Peter’s denial.
- The Easter account accurately fulfills every Old Testament prophecy about the Messiah’s death, burial, resurrection, and ascension.
- Before His arrest, Jesus had His disciples come with Him to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray. Jesus was in such agony that His sweat was like drops of blood. He prayed fervently for God to remove the suffering but remained in submission to the Father’s will. God gave Him grace and strength to endure.
- Judas betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. Jesus was arrested, and Peter gave in to temptation and denied Jesus three times.
- Jesus was crucified at Golgotha. King of the Jews was written on a sign and placed above His head. When Jesus said, “It is finished,” He meant that the debt had been paid in full – forgiveness of sin and salvation had come for those who would believe. Jesus suffered in the place of sinners so they could receive God’s grace of eternal life.
- Jesus was resurrected three days after His death. His resurrection is a guarantee that everything the Bible says about Him is accurate, and everyone who has faith in Him will live with Him forever. The Resurrection also demonstrates the power of God over death and sin.
- The disciples changed from being afraid to spreading the good news about Jesus Christ. Many died as martyrs because of their love and faith in Jesus.
- Jesus ascended into heaven 40 days after His resurrection.
- Jesus gave His disciples and all believers the Great Commission – to be His witnesses and to make disciples of all nations.
- Christians today have the same mission as the first disciples–to selflessly be witnesses for Christ and to spread the gospel, serving and encouraging one another in love.
- Old Testament prophecies about Christ that were fulfilled include:
- He would suffer and be rejected.
- He would be betrayed for 30 pieces of silver, arrested, and judged.
- His clothes would be distributed by casting lots.
- He would be hung on a tree.
- His hands and feet would be pierced; no bones would be broken.
- He would die alongside sinners.
- He would bear the weight of everyone’s sin.
- He would defeat death.
