Jesus on the cross was more than a very good man having a very bad day. At Calvary, “God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself” (2 Cor. 5:19). This reconciliation resonates through all of Jesus’ sacred statements on the cross. Considering them anew enriches our appreciation for what we celebrate every Easter.
Easter 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.

If you’re the kind of Christian who is now wondering, “Here’s another Easter; what part of the Bible do I study/teach this year?”—then let me admit that I’m in the same boat. I’ve got to write a blog post about Easter; where do I go?
Let’s steer this boat together, guiding it from the shoals of our mutual ignorance to the high seas of knowledge and joy, while fishing for the 153 fish of insight and avoiding the storms of bad hermeneutics.
Sometimes I have trouble picking a passage to study or preach on (that’s one reason I prefer expository series). When that happens, I look for a responsible path to serendipity. “Responsible,” meaning I don’t close my eyes, open my Bible, and stick my finger down. But “serendipity,” because I’m open to whatever insights jump out at me through responsible means.
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.
I recently blogged about highlighting and note files which generated a few questions like this:
How can I highlight text in one Bible and have those highlights show up in other Bibles?
Until recently that ability didn’t exist, but you’ll be happy to know it’s currently available in Logos Now That feature, Corresponding Notes and Highlights, works like this:
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.
