You have to hunt for the message of Easter. After all, this is not the joyous welcoming of a baby with the giving of gifts; this is the brutal death of a young man, stripped of any gifts and dignity. Yet, Jews had prayed for him, hoped for him, looked for him and lived for him for generations. But now the one who said he was Messiah was dead, killed by the very ones who had for so long anticipated his coming.


How could this have happened? His disciples had spent 3 years following him. and here they were in despair - but then they found the empty tomb. James Boice, one of the church's master communicators, explains the drama, purpose and events surrounding Easter so that it can become an occasion of spiritual joy


-Publisher

The Message of Easter is kept more in the background of the holiday than that of Christmas. After all, this is not the joyous welcoming of a baby with the giving of gifts, this is the brutal death of a young man, stripped of any gifts and dignity. For the Easter story to work as a joyous occasion you have to accept two stories - the death of Jesus - a negative event - and then the resurrection of Jesus - which requires faith. Without faith, the events speak of failure, with faith, they speak of triumph. Here the drama, purpose and events of Easter interplay around these two stories - and bring out the joy.
