As we enter the Easter period, we are going to be posting a series of blogs retelling the Easter story. There will be one post per day starting from tomorrow, and concluding on Easter Monday. The idea is to match the events covered in the story each day closely with the events that happened in the week leading up to Jesus trial, death, and resurrection. We don’t know the exact order of events, but have done our best to make the story as chronologically accurate as possible.
The material for ‘Easter Retold’ has been serialized from a book of Bible stories for adults by Hilary Higgins. If you’re interesting in finding more about this, please get in touch.
We hope that you will enjoy this version of the Easter story, and that it will make you think a little!
