Inside this tract are the following words:
Looking at the Christian calendar, it's easy to draw conclusions about which festival is most important. You might be forgiven for thinking it's Christmas, with busy churches and a celebration of the birth of Jesus.
But many Christians would argue it's actually Easter because this celebrates the central truth of the Christian faith: the resurrection of Christ.
Without this single astonishing twist to the Easter story, Christianity might have faded away to insignificance.
Jesus taught the people about God. Yet there were other preachers and teachers who tried to do that.
Jesus healed the sick, yet there were others offering a healing ministry.
Jesus attracted followers. Yet other leaders drew people to them, often seeking power for political reasons.
The big claim that Jesus made was that not only did he show people what God was like – he actually WAS divine himself: the Son of God.
And he went on to prove this by doing something no-one had ever done: he defeated death itself. Crucified, dead and laid in a stone tomb, after three days he came back to life, appearing to the women at the tomb, the disciples and many others.
Other religious leaders lived and died. Jesus is alive today.
Why not join us at church this Easter to explore why the resurrection of Jesus makes all the difference? It could change the way you think about Easter for ever ...
"If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10: 9)
