Explore the Bible with Our Easter Bible Study
Easter is a time to reflect on the life and death of Jesus Christ. It’s also a time when many people want to know more about their faith, so it’s an excellent opportunity for Bible study.
Our Easter Bible Study will help you dig deeper into Scripture as you explore these questions: What does Easter mean? How did Jesus die on the cross? Why do we celebrate his resurrection? And what should I do with my life after this day?
The Meaning of Easter
The meaning of Easter is often misunderstood. The word comes from the Anglo-Saxon “eastre,” which means “dawn.” It’s a reference to the spring equinox and refers to the rising of the sun after its long winter slumber. Many Christians believe that Jesus’ resurrection happened on this day, but there’s no biblical evidence for that claim–and it would have been impossible since he was crucified during Passover in late March or early April (Luke 23:44).
The traditional symbols associated with Easter include eggs (representing new life), bunnies (for reasons lost to history), and lambs (because lambs are cute). These symbols are all based on Old Testament passages such as Psalm 80:1-7; Isaiah 40:6-11; Ezekiel 34:11-16; Joel 2:23-26; Amos 5:18-20
Exploring Easter in the Bible
To get started, we’ll look at the Bible passages related to Easter.
- The first thing you should do is read through all of these passages in one sitting. This will help you get a sense of how they fit together and what they’re saying overall.
- Then, go back through them again and study each one individually with pen and paper (or your laptop). Look up any words or concepts that are unfamiliar to you so that when it comes time for discussion later on, everyone has the same understanding of what’s being talked about!
Exploring Easter in the Church
- The Easter season is a time for the church to celebrate and reflect on the meaning of Christ’s resurrection.
- There are many ways that you can be involved in your local church during this season, including attending services, participating in special events and activities, and volunteering your time to help out with various tasks.
Exploring Easter in the World
Easter is a time to celebrate the resurrection of Christ, but it’s also a time to reflect on the cultural and societal aspects of this holiday.
Easter is a Christian holiday that commemorates Jesus’ death and resurrection. It falls on the first Sunday after Passover, which marks the beginning of Lent (a 40-day period before Easter). The date changes each year based on when Easter falls in relation to Passover; this year’s date was April 1st through April 8th.
As you read through these articles about Easter traditions around the world, consider how different cultures celebrate this holiday–and how those celebrations have changed over time!
Exploring Easter in the Home
- Easter is a time for family. It’s a time to get together and celebrate, especially if you have children.
- There are many traditional activities that take place in the home during Easter, such as egg hunting and decorating eggs with your family. These activities can be fun ways to spend time together as well as teach your kids about Jesus’ resurrection from the dead!
- Here are some tips on how you can celebrate Easter with your family: -Have an Easter egg hunt outside or inside (depending on weather). You could even hide some candy instead of just candy eggs! -Decorate Easter eggs together using stickers or markers; then dye them with food coloring (you could also paint them). -Make sure everyone gets plenty of rest so they’re ready for all these fun activities!
Exploring Easter in the Community
The Easter season is a time for celebration and rejoicing. As you celebrate this holy day, we hope that you will take the opportunity to gather with family and friends, as well as participate in community activities that focus on the meaning of Easter.
The following are some ideas for celebrating Easter in your community:
- Host an Easter egg hunt at your local park or church. If there aren’t any organized events planned by other organizations, consider organizing one yourself! This can be done through word of mouth or social media posts (using #EasterEggHunt). You can also use this hashtag when posting photos from your event so others know how much fun they missed out on!
- Organize an ice cream social where everyone brings different flavors of homemade ice cream to share with each other (and maybe even try some new ones!). This is also a great opportunity for younger children who might not have been able to participate in an actual egg hunt due their age limit restrictions set forth by certain parks/parks departments across America today.”
Exploring Easter Through Art and Music
Easter is a time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It’s a wonderful time to reflect on what Easter means and how we can celebrate it.
It’s also a great opportunity for artists and musicians to express their faith through their work. Artists use different mediums such as drawing, painting, sculpture and more to show us what they believe about God or Jesus Christ. Musicians write songs about God or sing hymns that help us remember important parts of the Bible story like Jesus dying on the cross for our sins so we can be forgiven by Him if we ask Him into our hearts (2 Corinthians 5:21).
As you can see, there are many ways to study the Bible during Easter. Whether you’re looking for a way to deepen your faith or want to learn more about what it means to be a Christian, these studies will help you do just that!
If this is your first time doing an Easter Bible study, then I hope that this article has given you some ideas on how best to approach it. If not–well then I hope that maybe it’s still useful anyway! Either way though: Happy Easter!
7 Powerful Resurrection Sunday Scriptures to Inspire Your Faith
Resurrection Sunday is one of the most important days in Christianity. It is the day that we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The resurrection is a powerful event that shows us that Jesus is who he said he was and that he has the power to save us from our sins.
There are many scriptures that can inspire our faith on Resurrection Sunday. Here are 7 of them:
1. Matthew 28:6-7: “He is not here; for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.”
2. Luke 24:5-6: “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen.”
3. John 11:25-26: “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die.”
4. Acts 2:24: “God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.”
5. Romans 6:9: “We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him.”
6. 1 Corinthians 15:20: “But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of the harvest of the dead.”
7. Revelation 1:18: “I am he who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.”
These scriptures show us that Jesus has the power to overcome death and that he is alive forevermore. They also remind us that we have hope in Christ, even when we experience death in our own lives.
When we meditate on these scriptures, we can be encouraged and strengthened in our faith. They remind us of who Jesus is and what he has done for us. They also give us hope for the future, both here on earth and in eternity.
