Journey to the Resurrection with 10 Free Easter Video Reflections

journey to the resurrection

It’s hard to overplay the importance of the Resurrection of Jesus. When you read the Gospels closely, it becomes clear: the Resurrection isn’t just an afterthought; it’s not some narrative flourish wrapping the life of Christ in a neat theological bow. It’s the culmination of Christ’s ministry, and it points to the climax of history itself.

Everything leads to the Resurrection—the day the Son of God burst forth from the grave, declaring victory over the powers of darkness, and even death itself. As N.T. Wright has said, the Resurrection of Jesus is the first step in God’s program to “colonize earth with the life of heaven.” Nothing could be more momentous, more potent, or more transformative for the life of the Christian.

The Resurrection is so pivotal that a single day of reflection, Easter Sunday, just isn’t enough to truly appreciate its riches. And the Resurrection shouldn’t be understood in isolation either—every event in the life of Christ leads to the Resurrection, every day in the life of the church is shaped by its power, and every event in history pales in comparison to its significance.

To help you prepare your heart for Resurrection Sunday, we’ve partnered with respected scholars to give you 10 free video reflections on the life of Christ.

Each video features an 8–10 minute reflection by a respected scholar. These segments are perfect for your morning devotions on the days leading to Easter.

    Please use captions on your videos! I desperately want to learn how to use Logos well. Right now I use only a part of this wonderful tool in which I’ve invested a lot of money. I have a severe hearing loss and not a candidate for cochlear implant. I learn by reading/sight. Surely there are others out there with a similar problem of not hearing well. I have addressed this before and gotten no response. Please acknowledge that you are reading this and understand my problem.

      Hi, Charlene. So sorry we never got back to you regarding your earlier request. I’ve passed this suggestion on to the Logos Pro team and I’ll personally let you know if this is a possibility.
