Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body. Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid. It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.
I suggest you watch this video:
It is a video that talks about why we have Easter eggs. It shares some history, perspective from kids and worth the five minutes to watch.
I know it’s Maundy Thursday but thought this video would be great for folks to watch BEFORE Easter. Use some of the info with your little ones as you color and hunt for eggs in the next few days. Enjoy!
Lord God – While we aren’t able to peer into the tomb and see the body, we can use Easter eggs as a symbol to represent and help us understand your death and resurrection. Thank you for this long standing tradition. Encourage us to remember the true meaning behind these symbols this Holy Week. Amen.
If you have enjoyed this blog, please pass it along to someone else who might also enjoy it.
Folks – I apologize. In the e-mail edition, it didn’t include the video link the first time. Blessings! Dianne
