Jesus is Alive! {Easter}

Holy Week begins in a few days! We are taking a two-week break from Unit 6 to teach kids about the most profound act of love in the history of the world: God’s miraculous plan to bring us back into right relationship with Himself.

Key Passage: “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!” (Luke 24:5-6)

Big Picture Question: Who saves us from our sin? Only Jesus saves us from sin.

Jesus’ Triumphal Entry ● Matthew 21:1-17; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:28-44; John 12:12-19 | People welcomed Jesus to Jerusalem as their King.

The last week of Jesus’ earthly ministry started off with the triumphal entry, when Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey. The crowds that day welcomed Him as King, but they didn’t really understand what kind of King He was. Jesus was the Messiah spoken about by the prophet Zechariah: “Look, your King is coming to you; He is righteous and victorious, humble and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey” (Zechariah 9:9). One day, Jesus will return to earth on a white horse as King over everything, to make everything good again (Revelation 19:11). Jesus was first the suffering servant when He came to earth the first time, but when He returns, He will be the conquering King.

Crucifixion and Resurrection ● Matthew 26:36-28:10; John 18:1-20:18 | Jesus died on the cross to save people from the consequences of sin.

Just a few days after the triumphal entry, the same crowd that chanted “hosanna” to Jesus now chanted “crucify Him.” Jesus was betrayed by Judas, arrested, condemned, and crucified. After He died, Jesus was placed in a tomb, but on the third day, He rose again, conquering death and providing life to those who trust Him. The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus is the center of the gospel. Our sin has separated us from God, the source of life itself. But God is Love, and He loved His creation so much He came to earth as a man, Jesus—to defeat sin and death on the cross and in his resurrection, so that we could have new life in him, and be with Him forever.
