Easter is the celebration of Christ’s resurrection from the dead. It is celebrated on Sunday, and marks the end of Holy Week — the end of Holy Thursday, Good Friday & Lent — and is the beginning of the a holy season for the liturgical year.
As we know from the Gospels, Jesus Christ rose from the dead on the third day following his crucifixion, which would be Sunday. His resurrection marks the triumph of good over evil, sin and death. It is the singular event, which proves that those who trust in God and accept Christ, will be raised from the dead.
Since Easter represents the fulfillment of God’s promises to mankind, it is the most important holiday on the Christian calendar.
In the Gospels, the precise details of the resurrection narrative vary slightly, but none of these variances are critical to the main story. In fact, experts advise that any variances simply identify style and not substance. Despite the variances, the key aspects of the Easter story all match. Above all, they agree that the tomb of Christ was indeed empty, which is a very essential fact.
The Church of the Apostles invites all Christians to join us for Easter Service.
