Easter Story


This is a brief synopsis of the Easter events illustrated by pictures from different artists showing how they have been inspired by the story of jesus being arrested, sentenced, crucified, buried and then rising again from the tomb.

Palm Sunday

Palm_Sunday001Jesus rides into Jerusalem on a donkey and is met by enthusiastic crowds waving palms

The Last Supper

The_Last_Supper010Jesus and his disciples eat together in an “upper room”.  Jesus washes the feet of his disciples and identifies Judas as the one that will betray him

Jesus is crucified

The_Crucifixion004Jesus is tried, Pilate washes his hands of the verdict and Jesus carries his cross to the place of execution.  He is crucified along two robbers.  This unusual view of jesus on the cross is a powerful image.

Jesus is buried

The_Burial010Jesus is buried on the day of crucifixion – Good Friday and rises again on the third day – Easter Sunday (again in our calendar)

Jesus rises from the tomb

The_Empty_Tomb020The two Marys find the tomb empty and talk to someone that they think is the gardener until they realise it is Jesus.  These two women, the first to see Jesus, run to tell the disciples.HeIsRisen
