Easter Story

On a Holy Thursday night 2000 years ago, Jesus and his apostles were having the last supper before they did this. Jesus and the apostles had been in the garden of Gethsemane. While they were there the apostles went to sleep and the guards came to arrest Jesus and take him away.

They took Jesus to Pilate who asked the people what he should do with him and the people said to crucify him. So the guards took him back and whipped him 40 times, when they finished whipping him he had to carry a really heavy ugly cross because he was going to get crucified. When he was crucified people heard the bad news and went to see him, they cried and cried while they watched Jesus crucified in between two thieves.

Just before he died Jesus’ his last words were“ Father please forgive them because they don’t know what they are doing”.

When Jesus was taken down from the cross he was laid in a tomb. On the third day Mary Magdalene went to visit Jesus body but it wasn’t there.
