Easter Small Group Lesson
In your group, take turns sharing things you remember about when Jesus died and rose again.
Allow for discussion, and try to give everyone a chance to share something. It is ok if things are repeated.
After a time of discussion, work together to put the following statements in the order you think they happened.
_____ Jesus was nailed to the cross
_____ Jesus was arrested when he was betrayed by Judas
_____ The tomb is empty because Jesus rose from the dead!
_____ An angel moves away the stone blocking the tomb
_____ The soldiers put a crown of thorns on Jesus’ head and make fun of him
Read Matthew 28:1-11 together then discuss
Why was Mary afraid? (she was afraid of the angel)
Why was Jesus not in the tomb? (He rose from the dead and was alive again)
How did Jesus come alive again? (God’s power brought Jesus back to life)
What do you like best about the Easter story? (give everyone a chance to share)
