Background to Easter Celebration
Easter commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ; it is the most important Christian festival, and the one celebrated with the greatest joy.
On Good Friday, Jesus Christ was executed by crucifixion. His body was taken down from the cross and buried in a cave.
The tomb was guarded and an enormous stone was put over the entrance so that no-one could steal the body.
On the following Sunday, some women visited the grave and found that the stone had been moved and that the tomb was empty.
Jesus himself was seen that day, and for days afterward by many people. His followers realized that God had raised Jesus from the dead.
