What is Easter and Why Does it Matter?


The Message of Easter is about hope. It is good news. Easter is an undeniable, essential and critical message of the church. But what is this celebration all about? What does it mean?

A recent poll revealed a disturbingly high number of people that could not explain what Easter celebrates. I spoke about who and what Easter is about from Matthew 27:55-28:20. (Audio)

The Message of Easter

I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you … [W]hat I received I passed on to you as of first importance[a]: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas,[b]and then to the Twelve. 6 After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep … 10 this is what we preach, and this is what you believed (1 Corinthians 15:1-6, 10).
