Easter is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus and the most important Christian holiday. According to the bible, Jesus, the son of god, was born in a manger, and when he was thirty years old, he chose twelve students and began to preach. For three and a half years, he was sick, preaching, driving out demons, helping all who need it, and telling the truth of the kingdom of heaven. The time came when Jesus Christ was betrayed by the disciples judas, arrested and questioned, crucified by the Roman soldiers, and prophesied that he would be raised three days after his death. On the third day, Jesus rose again! According to the interpretation of the bible, Jesus Christ is the son of the flesh, the world's scapegoat for the SINS of the world, which is why Easter is so important.
Although Jesus was crucified as a prisoner, he died not because he was guilty, but to make atonement for the world according to god's plan. Now he is raised from the dead, and says he has made atonement for us. Anyone who believes in him and confesses to him will be forgiven. And the resurrection of Jesus means that he is better than death, so that all who believe in him have eternal life, that they may be with Jesus forever. Because Jesus is still alive, so he can hear us praying to him, taking care of our daily life, giving us strength to give us hope every day. He is still alive, with us every day.
