Based on stories from the Bible. The inspiring stories about Jesue days on earth can be found in the new Testament of the Bible.

A Story of Easter

Based on stories from the bible


When He returned from praying

He found His disciples asleep

He said to them: Could you not watch for one hour?

For one hour, just to let me pray?

Behold! They have come

They have come to take Me away


Judas, a disciple, now gone astray

He drew near to betray Jesus with a kiss

Yet, he knew, Jesus had not done anything amiss

A disciple drew a sword; cutting off the soldier’s ear.


The ear of the soldier, Jesus did repair

And He said to His disciple;

Put up thy sword into its place

Who fight by the sword, will die by the sword

Multitudes of Angels, My FATHER will send me

If I only pray


They took hold of Jesus and led Him away

Jesus was mocked; spit upon, struck in the face,

a blindfold placed over His eyes

He stood before the governor, Pilate

Pilate could find no wrong with this Man

He was taken to Heron

Heron did not know what to do with Him

Again, He stood before Pilate; again Pilate found no wrong

Yet the multitude of people cried out; Crucify Him!


Pilate said: I will chastise Him

Jesus was beaten with a whip until

The flesh on His body was torn

His garments soaked in His own blood

The crowd was still not at peace


They shouted: Crucify Him! Crucify Him!



The people could choose; Jesus or Barabbas

Who will it be?

Will Barabbas, the murderer, be released? 

Or will they set Jesus free?

The multitude shouted; release Barabbas

Crucify Jesus! Crucify Him! Crucify Him!


Pilate washed his hands before the crowd and said:

I am innocent of this Man’s blood 

See to it yourself! Do what you want!

The soldiers took Jesus away

They stripped Him of His clothes

They threw a scarlet military cloak about Him

Weaving a crown of thorns

They placed it on His head

They placed a reed in His right hand


They knelt before Him

Mocked Him - saying: “Hail, King of The Jews!”

They took the reed from His hand

They hit Him with it many times

They stripped Him of the scarlet cloak

They dressed Him in His own clothes


Jesus was taken to Calvary and was crucified

Again the soldiers mocked Him 

They gave Him vinegar to drink; He refused to drink

Jesus said; forgive them FATHER

They know not what they do


A written charge; placed above His head; It read: 

This is Jesus, The King of the Jews

From noon until the late evening

Darkness came over all the earth

Jesus cried out in a loud voice: 


My GOD! My GOD! Why have you forsaken Me?


Jesus cried out, yet again saying:  

Into THY hands I commend My Spirit 

Jesus gave up His Spirit and died


The veil of the sanctuary was torn in two; top to bottom        

The earth quaked, rocks split, tombs were opened

And the bodies of many saints ascend

The men keeping watch over Jesus feared greatly

They said, truly, this was the Son of GOD


In the evening, Joseph, a disciple of Jesus

went to Pilate and begged for the body of Jesus

The body was hand over to Joseph

He wrapped Jesus body in clean linen 

He laid the body in a new tomb that he had hewn in the rock

He rolled an enormous stone to the entrance of the tomb and he departed 

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary stayed behind

They sat facing the tomb


Remembering that Jesus promised to ascend on the

third day the chief priests and the Pharisees secured the stone with a seal. They set a watch; they feared, Jesus disciples would steal the body in the night 


After the Sabbath; a vast earthquake shook the earth

An angel of the Lord descended from Heaven

The angel rolled the stone form the entrance of the tomb

The angel sat upon the stone.


Jesus appearance was like lightning 

His clothes were white as snow   

The guards were shaken with great fear

They became as dead men


Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came with sweet spices and ointments to anoint the body of Jesus.  They stood weeping; Jesus body could not be found.  Why do you weep? the angel asked.

Mary Magdalene replied, they have taken my Lord

Why do you seek the living among the dead? 

He is not here.  He has risen as He said He would


Go quickly; tell His disciples

They shall see Him in Galilee

Overcome with fear; yet overjoyed

The two ladies ran to tell the disciples

that Jesus had risen from the dead


Jesus met them on the way; He greeted them 

They approached and reached out to Him 

Jesus said:  Touch Me not

for I have not ascended to My Father

Go tell my brothers to meet me in Galilee


Jesus appeared before His disciples three times

At first; the eleven did not believe  

Then, He sat at the table with them; took bread;

said the blessing; broke it and gave it to them 

Their eyes were opened and they recognized Him

Jesus led the eleven to Bethany

While He blessed them. He was taken up to Heaven.
