Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Family Bible Study - Easter Sunday!

Gospel Passage
Matt. 28:1 After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary
Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. 2 And suddenly there was a
great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came and rolled
back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing
white as snow. 4 For fear of him the guards shook and became like dead men. 5 But
the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus
who was crucified. 6 He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said. Come, see the
place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples, ‘He has been raised from
the dead, and indeed he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him.’ This
is my message for you.” 8 So they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy, and
ran to tell his disciples. 9 Suddenly Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they
came to him, took hold of his feet, and worshiped him. 10 Then Jesus said to them,
“Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
Questions for discussion -

1. Today we celebrate that Jesus was raised from the dead three days after he
was killed by Crucifixion, just as he had promised. This is the most important
thing that ever happened in the history of the world. How does the risen Jesus
help you in your daily life?

2. Mary Magdalene and Mary, the Mother of James, went to the tomb “looking
for Jesus.” Where do you go to look for Jesus? How hard do you look for him?

3. The women left the tomb “with fear and great joy.” What do you think made
them so happy? What do you think had made them afraid?
