How Will You Get Ready for Easter?

prepareforeaster-blogEaster is just 10 days away, and your plans are probably in full swing. Whether it’s putting on a big Easter meal or an entire Easter service, there’s no question that this season can get bogged down with plans and preparations.

The death and resurrection of Jesus is the culminating event of Christianity, the climax of the story of God’s reconciliation with humanity. Imagine if Christians used the days preceding Easter to pause and reflect. How might their priorities shift? What plans and preoccupations would fade from their minds as their eyes fixed on the terrible, beautiful cross?

We’ve created 10 video reflections to help you do precisely that—to guide your thoughts and prepare your heart for the victory of Easter Sunday. We’ve also compiled a number of resources to supplement your spiritual meditations. As you journey toward the resurrection, here are three inspiring resources to guide your reflections.

Using Logos with Your Mobile Ed Courses Just Got a Lot Easier

mobile ed easter course

Mobile Ed’s new Activities resource gives you two new ways to experience our courses. If you’re the kind of Mobile Ed student who likes to simply sit back and watch through the videos and skim the transcripts, we’ve streamlined that process for you by getting some things (like screencasts, guides, and tools) out of your way so you can focus on the course content. But if you like to click on every link, dig into the software, and actively work through a course’s ideas, the Activities resource will be a great option for you. It’s free and has been included for the first time with our Easter compilation course: NT156 Understanding Easter: The Significance of the Resurrection.

March Monthly Sale: Featured Product

The New Testament writers used a variety of literary and grammatical devices to help guide the reader. Known as “discourse devices,” these elements attract your attention to key information, alert you that something surprising is about to happen, and perform many other tasks. However, discourse devices are often not apparent in English translations—or easily understood even in the Greek text—except with years of language study.

Our understanding of the Greek New Testament is based almost entirely on English translations, but how would our understanding of the Greek text change if we read it for what it is—as Greek? That’s the power of understanding these discourse devices.

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.

Get 10 free video reflections for Easter here.

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.
