Telling the Story of Easter in Bible Verses to Your Children
Here are several Bible passages that will help you explain the story of Jesus death and Jesus’ resurrection in a simple way.
- “You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man is to be handed over for crucifixion.” Matthew 26:2
- There they crucified Him, and with Him two other men, one on either side, and Jesus in between. John 19:18
- Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last. The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and said, “Surely this was a righteous man.” Luke 23:46-47
- When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!” Matthew 27:54
- So they took the body of Jesus and bound it in linen cloth with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews. John 19:40
- And Joseph took the body and…laid it in his own new tomb, which he had cut in the rock; and he rolled a large stone over the entrance of the tomb and went away. Matthew 27:50-60
- Now after the Sabbath, near dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. And a great earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat on it. The angel’s appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were as white as snow. The guards shook, paralyzed with fear of him and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come! See the place where He was lying. Then go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see Him; behold, I have told you.” Matthew 28:1-7
- He (Jesus) asked her, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?” Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.” Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means “Teacher”). Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them that he had said these things to her. John 20:15-18
