Scripture Union Ireland and Scripture Union Scotland have teamed up to produce this free 3-part NUA video series that provides a fresh perspective on Easter and why it matters for us today.
Join Sarah Campbell, Darren Bourke and Mark Murray on a very unique and entertaining journey that highlights the meaning of the incredible events of Easter.
- Episode One: The Origins of Easter – When we think about Easter, our minds turn to bunnies, eggs and lots of chocolate! But Easter is really a worldwide Christian festival, as important to Christians as Christmas. So what is it Christians are actually celebrating? This episode explores the origins of Easter by going back to the very beginning and discovering Jesus’ mission in coming to Earth. However, the rescue mission takes a strange turn when Jesus is arrested by Roman soldiers. Surely that wasn’t part of the plan?!
- Episode Two: The Story of Good Friday – “It’s not fair!” are words we’re all familiar with! We want fairness, justice. But possibly the most unfair thing ever to have happened took place on the very first Easter. Jesus was innocent; his friends, and even his opponents, knew that full well. And yet Jesus was sentenced to death by crucifixion – a terrible punishment. This episode explores the trial of Jesus for crimes he hadn’t committed. What was to become of his mission? Had his amazing rescue plan failed?
- Episode Three: The Meaning of the Resurrection – Jesus is dead, and buried in a tomb. An enormous stone and Roman soldiers guard the entrance. But when some of his followers visit the tomb one early morning, something astonishing unfolds. The stone is rolled away, the soldiers gone; an earthquake, angels, and an amazing message! We don’t all like surprises, but for Christians, this surprise at the heart of Easter, is the best news the world has ever heard! This final episode explores the resurrection of Jesus and what it means for Christians today.
