MEMORY WORK (12 minutes)
: “Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life.’” —John 11:25
SCRIPTURE READING AND DISCUSSION (15 minutes)
After Jesus died on the cross, Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for His body. Joseph was one of Jesus'
secret followers. He was usually afraid of the Jews, but on this day he was bold enough and strong in his
love for Jesus that he volunteered to take care of his body. He and Nicodemus wrapped Him in strips of
linens with spices, in accordance to Jewish burial customs. Then they placed Him in a new tomb. After this,
Pilate gave an order to make the tomb secure, and to have it guarded. He was afraid the disciples would
deceive the people by removing the body and claiming Jesus had been raised from the dead. This is where
our story today begins.
Read Matthew 28:1-10 ( Have a Skit to present your lesson)
1. Who were the first disciples to visit the tomb? (Mary Magdalene and the other Mary)
2. When did they go to visit the tomb? (After the Sabbath - or Sunday morning.)
3. How would you react if you visited a grave of a loved one today, and found it empty? How did the two
women react?(They were afraid)
4. What happened to the guards? (When they saw the angel, they were afraid and fell as if dead.)
5. What did the angel say to the women? (see Matthew 28:5,6)
6. Once the women understood that Jesus was alive and they would see Him again, how did they
react? (They were filled with joy and hurried to tell the others.)
APPLICATION (4 minutes)
The Bible says, "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!. In his great mercy he has given
us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an
inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you." (1 Peter 1:3-4)
The resurrection of Jesus is the center of the Easter story. Jesus bore our sins and so died on a cross, but
He rose from the dead! His resurrection gives us life. We are powerless in our sin, but if we have faith in
Jesus, and believe in His resurrection, we become new creations. "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new
creation has come; the old has gone, the new is here!" (2 Corinthians 5:17)
