  5. The Easter Story

"The Biblical Easter Story"
Betrayal - Crucifixion - Resurrection

The Easter Story is from our in-depth study of the Gospel of John. Hopefully, it will help bring meaning and understanding to the Easter Season.

There are a total of six segments of Scripture and commentary that can be read, one each day in just a few minutes, or all at one reading.

This study is from the Gospel of John in the last week of Jesus' life on earth.


                  "The Study of Easter"

"The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus," (Jn 18:1-40)

Jesus could have stopped the process at any moment. He was not so much the victim as the Orchestrator of Events.


"Soldiers Mock and Beat Jesus," (Jn 19:1-16)

Severe scourging often preceded crucifixions. Flogging and scourging almost to the point of death were a part of the death sentence.


"The Crucifixion of Jesus," (Jn 19:17-27)

Crucifixion was despised by the Jews and considered the most hideous Roman method of execution. It was reserved only for slaves and criminals. According to Deut. 21:23, whoever is hanged on a cross was considered accursed of God.


"The Death of Jesus on the Cross," (Jn 19:28-42)

The complicated (Old Covenant) system of animal sacrifice was about to be replaced by the sacrifice of the Lamb of God. Jesus would become the final and ultimate sacrifice for sin.


"The Resurrection," (Jn 20:1-31)

Mary Magdalene sees the empty tomb and two angels - meets Christ outside the grave - tells the other disciples - Jesus and Doubting Thomas.
