The date when Easter is celebrated changes each year. This year Easter Day is 12th April for the western Church and 19th April for the Eastern Orthodox Church. This makes Easter topical during the challenge. (In some years it is celebrated in March.)
The whole story of Easter is told by four different writers in the New Testament of the Bible. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John describe the events from different viewpoints, writing for different readerships. The four accounts in the New Testament are Matthew 26-28, Mark 14-16, Luke 22-24, John 12-16 (Jesus teaching before his trial and execution) and John 17-21. (The central part of the Easter story and evidence for the resurrection)
I hope that you, dear reader, will read these accounts whether or not you are already familiar with them. May you know the Love, peace and joy, which Easter brings.
For each letter I am picking out one or more significant words in the story. Each post will link back to this one for the links to the passages of scripture. All the Bible references are linked to Bible Gateway
