About the Story

Easter is a Christian event that celebrates Jesus Christ's resurrection. This year's holiday falls on April 21 and will be observed all around the world. Easter is three days after Jesus' crucifixion by the Romans, according to the New Testament of the Bible.

Easter brings to a close the "Passion of Christ," which began with Lent, a 40-day period of fasting, and ended with Holy Week. Holy Thursday (the celebration of Jesus' final supper) and Good Friday (the crucifixion of Jesus Christ) are part of Holy Week, which concludes on Easter Sunday.

Let us know the complete story of Ester on this topic.


The story of Easter is found in the New Testament of the Bible, in which Jesus is arrested by Roman authorities for claiming to be the "Son of God." Pontius Pilate, the Roman emperor, then sentenced him to death by crucifixion. Easter is celebrated three days after his resurrection. The Jewish festival of Passover is also celebrated on this day.

Overview of the Story

This is a children's Easter story. God sent a man named Jesus to the planet 3,000 years ago. Amid Bethlehem, he was born in unusual circumstances. His mother Marie and father Joseph were his primary caregivers as he grew up. When Jesus was thirteen years old, he began teaching others about God. He was constantly willing to help people. He was able to feed thousands of hungry people with only a small amount of food, heal the sick, prevent natural disasters, and even bring the dead back to life.

The temple that Jesus constructed was once destroyed by the Romans. While some people admired him for his charity, others were envious of him and planned to kill him. He was kidnapped by Romans who sought to dominate the province. Soldiers led him to Golgotha, which means "The Skull's Place." They gave him some wine that had been laced with a drug, but he refused to drink it.

The Easter Story

The Easter Story

Jesus was nailed to the cross. The soldiers were fighting over who would get Jesus' clothes. Around 9 o'clock in the morning, they nailed Jesus to the cross. Two criminals were also nailed alongside Jesus, one to his right and the other to his left. Passers-by made insulting comments about Jesus. "So you're the one who rebuilt the temple in three days!" they said, shaking their heads. Come down off the cross and save yourself!" The chief priests mocked him as well, saying to one another, "He can save others, but not himself!" Jesus was also abused by the two criminals.

Death of Jesus

The sky darkened around 3 o'clock in the afternoon. "My God!" Jesus exclaimed at that point. Oh, my God! I commit my spirit to your hands!" Jesus' body was destroyed and then he died. The temple's curtains were ripped apart from top to bottom at the same time. "This man was truly the son of God!" said an Army officer standing in front of the hanged Jesus after seeing how Jesus died.

The Resurrection

After his death, Jesus went to heaven and met God. All of his aches and pains had gone. The deity told him that his people needed him, so he sent him back to Earth to help them. Jesus was raised from the dead!

Mother Marie went out after the resurrection and bought some spices to rub on Jesus' body. She and two friends went to the tomb early in the morning. They were talking about the large stone at the entrance on the way there. They debated who would roll the large stone from there. However, when they arrived, they discovered that the stone had already been removed. It was a big stone. The woman entered the tomb and noticed a young man sitting on the right side. He was an angel.

"Are you looking for the body of Jesus, the one who was nailed to the cross?" the angel said. He told them that God had raised Jesus from the dead and that his body had gone. For the sake of his people, Jesus had taken their sins and risen from the dead.

Did You know?

Easter Eggs have hidden messages or pop-cultural references in movies, video games, and other media. This is because Easter eggs are made to mimic the Easter egg hunt that takes place during the festival. It's possible that these are hidden messages, characters, or images. It's as if the software programmers or directors have a tiny secret that they want to impart yet keep private. Looking for Easter eggs is a fun and interesting activity because it usually reveals more about the character or plotline.

In almost every Disney film, the iconic Mickey Mouse ears or head appear in a scene. Similarly, characters from prior films have been known to 'visit' one other in animated films such as The Lion King (1994), Little Mermaid (1989), Lilo & Stitch (2002), Finding Nemo (2003), Frozen (2013), and others, either as guests, toys, or wall clocks.
