Some people I think are confused when it comes to the meaning of Easter!!  I can tell you it is not the bunnies and fluffy chickies, the candy or even coloring eggs!!   Eggs can however represent new life, because an egg brings new life and Christ was risen on the third day to bring new life!!   But just like Christmas, Easter has been way commercialized!! For those of us that are Christians we know the real meaning of Easter, but for those who haven't experienced  new life in Jesus, I will share it with you!!

In Old Testament Times, the priest would bring bulls to be sacrificed as a sin offering for himself and for the people.  The blood would purify and make atonement for their sins.  When Jesus came, He was a representation of the sacrificial lamb to take away the sins of the world. He was the final sacrifice. We no longer have to make atonement for our sins.  Jesus has done this once and for all. It's His blood that cleanses us from all sin. He was crucified on the cross.  The sin of the world was upon Him, yet He was without sin and blameless. He bore it all. This is why Jesus is referred to as the 'Lamb of God'. He was bodily resurrected  on the third day. He appeared to many. He appeared to them for 40 days, then ascended  up to Heaven.
