Easter is a wonderful time to celebrate the joy of the Resurrection…but it’s also important to remember the darkness before dawn. Going through hard times can make the happy moments even better! This lesson describes several elements with contrasts to exemplify how we can have extra hope even when things are tough. Just as darkness makes the day brighter or cold days make summer warmer, the sorrow of Good Friday paves the way for an incredible and exuberant Easter! We recognize that life includes sadness and evil, but Jesus conquered death, and God has already won the victory! 

The story of Easter is a great reversal…what a contrast the message of Jesus is from the punitive rules of the Law! Christ did not come to abolish the law, of course, but to fulfill it, and that happened on the cross. He bore our sin and punishment, suffering in our place and satisfying the consequences we deserve. Because of that, we have the reassuring wonder of knowing that everything we do, have done, and will do is covered by His blood. What a blessing to know that He paid the price and redeemed us! 

Passage: John 20:1-18

Target Audience: Kindergarten-6th grade

            Thank you for the free lesson plan. Our Sunday School class ages 10-13 were engaged and participated in the lesson discussion. They enjoyed acting out the Easter mimes. They also enjoyed the “He is Risen” relay race.
