Religious Easter coloring pages have a definite and profound spiritual meaning. Christ was crucified on the day we called Good Friday and was buried in the Garden Tomb. Three days later, to everyone’s amazement, the tomb was empty.
Easter is one of the most important holidays of the year for Christians. Usually takes place in March or April each year to commemorate the death and resurrection of Jesus from the dead after being crucified.
Jesus and his disciples went up to Jerusalem on the occasion of the Passover; he entered the Jerusalem Temple and was greeted by the people with leaves lining the road and waving (now called Palm Sunday). On Thursday (now Holy Thursday), Jesus washed the disciples’ feet and ate his last meal with them. That evening, Jesus was arrested by order of the Sanhedrin because an apostle had betrayed him to receive a reward.
Under pressure from the Jewish religious leaders, Governor-General Pontius Pilate (Pilate) reluctantly ordered the crucifixion of Jesus on a Friday (now Good Friday). Jesus was forced to carry his cross to Golgotha, crucified, and died.
Christians believe that Jesus rose again on Sunday, three days after his death on the cross. Among them, Maria Magdalena, the woman who visited the tomb but found it empty.
The resurrection of Jesus gives us new life and becomes new people, here and now. Thus, to have a new life, we must give up the old self, the selfish person, and make a complete makeover, from conception, way of thinking, talking, acting, to an absolute newbie.
