The Resurrection of Jesus
adapted from Matthew 28 for young children 3+
and John 20 for children under 4 



Matthew 28
Ages 3+

Jesus died on a Friday afternoon.  Friends quickly placed his body in a tomb cut into a rocky hillside and blocked the entrance with a great stone.  Guards were sent to secure the tomb.

On Sunday, when two women, one called Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were visiting the tomb, they felt a great earthquake.

They saw an angel come and roll away the stone from the entrance of the tomb. The guards were so frightened that they shook and fainted!

The angel told the women not to be afraid,  that Jesus was not there for he had risen.  This meant that Jesus was alive!  The angel told them to go quickly and tell Jesus' friends that he is alive.

On their way back suddenly Jesus met them and said  "Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, there they will see me" 

And just as Jesus had promised he rose from the dead on the third day after his death!   

Christians celebrate Easter Sunday to remember this important event. 


Jesus is Alive!
Adapted from John 20
(for children under 4 years)


Mary Magdalene was crying.
She was so, so sad 
that Jesus had died.
"Do not cry" said an angel
"Jesus is alive. He is not dead."
Then Mary Magdalene saw Him!
And of course she knew
That what the angel told her was true.
Oh, Mary was so, so happy!

When all of Jesus' friends saw Him
They were all so, so happy too!
Jesus was alive again
And we are so, so happy too!
