There are a few events and truths that are so powerful, all of our existence is changed by them. Think what has happened to the world since 4th of July, 1776. Or how things would look so different if D-Day, 1945 in WWII had never happened. But none of these can compare with that first Easter Sunday, the day Jesus defeated death and began to “make all things new” (Revelation 21:5). All of history and reality is re-focused through the prism of the Resurrection.
Why do you love Jesus? “For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life that I may take it up again.” John 10:17

Beginning with the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey on the first day of the week through His death and resurrection, this timeline/visual aid nicely depicts what the Four Gospels describe happened to the Son of Man. You can trace each line through to see how Pilate, John, the disciples, and Jesus journeyed through those days. I think my favorite is how the graph depicts the resurrection sightings. Hopefully this will encourage you to meditate on your crucified and risen Savior this season.
