Easter Stories and Sermons

Forsideomslag

Easter is not about mauve hats nor chocolate Easter bunnies. What it is about is joy -- the joy (and therefore hope) of the resurrection from death of the Lord Jesus Christ. The thought behind this book was to gather stories related to Easter's message and blend them with some particularly piercing sermons given on Easter Day when perhaps some inspiration might have seeped through the cobblestones of society's day-to-day clatter. And surely life, society and daily thinking have changed immensely during the last 20 centuries, 20 years and perhaps even 20 minutes. Yet, if one reads the biblical texts, the overriding concerns of the people of that time do not differ much from our own. Jesus Christ's resurrection from death brought about a large-scale change in life's equation, however. The message is not hard to understand even in today's world. It is hoped that this modest book will remind readers of what they should already know.

Side 171 - My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee, so that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding ; if thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures ; then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.

Side 33 - Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou ? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
