17 Scripture Story By reading the Bible and Book of Mormon we can learn what Jesus Christ did to help us.

18 Scripture Story Jesus Christ lived a long time ago. Heavenly Father sent him to this earth to help fathers and mothers and boys and girls do the right things.

19 Scripture Story Jesus Christ suffered and died. The people who loved him were very sad. They took his body off the cross and wrapped it in a beautiful white cloth.

20 Scripture Story They carried his body inside a tomb. They gently laid him down.

21 Scripture Story A tomb is like a cave where people are buried.

22 Scripture Story Jesus Christ’s friends then closed the entrance to the tomb by rolling a large stone in front of the doorway.

23 Scripture Story Some soldiers came and guarded the tomb where his body lay.

24 Scripture Story On the third day after he died, before the sun came up, angels came and rolled back the stone from the door.

25 Scripture Story His body was not there. The soldiers were so afraid that for a while they could not move.

26 Scripture Story As soon as they could, they ran away.

27 Scripture Story That same morning some women came to the tomb. They loved Jesus Christ and had come to put sweet spices on his body as people did in those days.

28 Scripture Story They saw the stone rolled away from the door. They went into the tomb and saw an angel dressed in white, and they were afraid.

29 Scripture Story The angel said, “Do not be afraid. He is not here, for he is risen.”

30 Scripture Story How do you think Jesus Christ’s friends felt when they found he was resurrected?

31 Discussion When Jesus was resurrected, he received his body again to join with his spirit, but his body had changed.

39 Immortal What does immortal mean?

40 When the Savior’s body became immortal, it changed so that it would never die again but would live forever.

41 Scripture Story We know Jesus Christ was resurrected because the scriptures tell us that many of his disciples and followers saw him after he was resurrected.

42 Demonstration When we think of Easter, we should think about the first Easter and remember the love that Jesus Christ has for us. He gave his life for us. He was resurrected. Now he lives in heaven with his Heavenly Father.

43 When Jesus was resurrected, he became immortal, and he also made it possible for all of us to be resurrected and become immortal.

44 This means that after we have been resurrected, we will never die again. We can live with our families forever.

45 Demonstration My Hand represents our spirit, that lived with Heavenly father before we were born. We could move, like I can move my fingers, and think and learn.

46 Demonstration When our spirits came to live on earth, we were given earthly bodies, Which I use this glove to symbolize. We could still move, like I can move my finger in this glove, and think and learn, but Heavenly Father gave us wonderful bodies to have and take care of.

47 Demonstration When we die, the body must separate from the spirit, like when I take off the glove. The body cannot move by itself, (like this glove can’t move without the hand inside) but the spirit is still alive.

48 Demonstration When we are resurrected, the body becomes perfect and is once again united with the spirit (put glove back on hand). After we are resurrected, we can never die again. That means that the spirit and the body can never be separated.

49 Demonstration Because Jesus Christ loves each of us very much, he died for us. Jesus was the first person to be resurrected. Because of what he did for us, we will be resurrected and may live again with Heavenly Father.

50 Demonstration Jesus Christ’s resurrection is so wonderful that each year we celebrate Easter to show him how grateful we are for what he did for us.

51 Activity I’m going to toss this to you. When you catch it, please tell something you remember about the Easter story.

52 The prophets had told the Nephites for many years that Jesus Christ would visit them someday.

53 Samuel told the Nephites that Jesus Christ would be born in five years and that he would save all those who believed in him.

54 Samuel told them about the signs of Jesus’ birth. A new star would appear, and the night before Jesus would be born it would not get dark.

55 Then Samuel told them the signs of Jesus’ death. There would be three days of total darkness—the sun, moon, and stars would not shine.

56 There would also be thunder and lightning and earthquakes. Mountains would crumble, and many cities would be destroyed.

57 Lets read 3 Nephi 11:7 7 Behold my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, in whom I have glorified my name—hear ye him. 7 Behold my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, in whom I have glorified my name—hear ye him.

58 Many years later, many Nephites gathered at the temple in Bountiful. They were amazed at the great changes in the land.

59 The people were talking about Jesus Christ and the sign of his death.

60 While they were talking, they heard a quiet voice from heaven. It made their hearts burn.

61 At first they did not understand the voice, but when it spoke the third time, they understood it.

62 The voice was Heavenly Father’s. It introduced Jesus Christ and told the people to listen to him.

63 Jesus Christ came down from heaven and stood among the people. They were afraid to speak because they did not understand what was happening.

64 They thought Jesus was an angel.

65 He told them he was Jesus Christ, the one the prophets had said would come.

66 Jesus told the people to come and feel the marks in his side and in his hands and feet, where he had been nailed to the cross.

67 Jesus wanted the people to know that he was their God and that he had died for their sins.

68 One by one the people felt the marks in Jesus’ side, hands, and feet. One by one The people knew he was the Savior.

69 Then the people praised Jesus and fell at his feet and worshiped him.

70 Jesus loved the Nephites. He told them to bring the people who were sick or hurt to him so he could heal them.

71 Who was speaking? Who was speaking?

72 – Heavenly Father

73 Who was speaking? Who was speaking? – Heavenly Father Who was really coming down from heaven? Who was really coming down from heaven?

74 Who was speaking? Who was speaking? – Heavenly Father Who was really coming down from heaven? Who was really coming down from heaven? – Jesus

75 Who was speaking? Who was speaking? – Heavenly Father Who was really coming down from heaven? Who was really coming down from heaven? – Jesus How do you think the people felt to be with Jesus Christ? How do you think the people felt to be with Jesus Christ?

76 People were filled with so much gratitude and love for the Savior that they shouted, “Hosanna! Blessed be the name of the Most High God!” (3 Nephi 11:17).3 Nephi 11:17

77 They fell down on their knees and worshiped him. Jesus Christ felt so much love for these people that he stayed among them and healed their sick, blessed their children, and taught them.

78 The Book of Mormon tells us that never had there been a happier people on the earth than these people.

79 Let’s sing the Song “Jesus has Risen”

80 Jesus is Risen Jesus has risen, Jesus, our friend. Joy fills our hearts; He lives again. Praises we sing to him, This Easter-time. Jesus has risen, Savior divine. Jesus has risen, Savior divine! Words and music: Thelma Johnson Ryser, (c) 1959 IRI.
