Easter Story For Kids
This is the Easter Story For Kids. 3,000 years ago, God sent a man to earth, his name was Jesus. He was born under strange circumstances in the Bethlehem. He grew up under the care of his mother Marie and father Joseph. When Jesus was about 13 years old, he started teaching people about God. He always helped others. He fed thousands of needy people with just a little bit of food, he made sick people better, he could stop the natural calamities and he could even awake the dead people back to life.
Jesus built the temple that Roman people had destroyed once. Some people loved him because of his kindness while some Roman people were jealous of him and made a plan to kill him. The Roman people who wanted to rule the province captured him. The soldiers took Jesus to Golgotha, which means ‘The Place Of The Skull’. There, they gave Jesus some wine mixed with a drug but he refused to drink. Also, read The Birth Of Jesus.
They nailed Jesus to cross. The soldiers were gambling about who would get Jesus’s clothes. It was about 9’o clock in the morning when the Roman people nailed him to cross. The soldiers also nailed two criminals with Jesus, one to his right and other to his left side. People who passed by said terrible things about Jesus. They shook their heads and shouted, “So you are the one who built the temple again within three days! Save yourself and come down from the cross!” The chief priests also made fun of him and said to each other, “He can save others, but can’t save himself!” The two criminals also said cruel things to Jesus.
About noon around 3’o clock, the sky turned dark. That time, Jesus shattered and said, “My god! My god! I commit my spirit in your hands!” Jesus shattered and then died. At once, the curtains in the temple torn apart from top to bottom. An Army Officer was standing in front of crucified Jesus. When the officer saw how Jesus had died, he said, “This man was really the son of god!” After his death, he went up in the heaven, and there he met the god. All his pain and wounds had gone. The god told Jesus that his followers need him and so he sent him to the Earth again to save his people.
After the resurrection, Mother Marie bought some spices to put on Jesus body. She went to the tomb early morning with her two friends. On the way, they were discussing about the big stone that is kept at the entrance. They were thinking that who would roll the big stone from there. But there they saw that the stone had been already removed. It was a huge stone. The women went into the tomb and on the right side, they saw a young man sitting there. He was an angel.

The angel asked, “Are you searching for the body of Jesus, the one who was nailed to cross?” He told them that the god had risen Jesus to life and the body of Jesus was disappeared. Jesus took his people sins and rise again for the sake of his people.
