In VBS 2014, Day 3 answers the question, “Was Jesus’ Death Real?” It is a day where kids will read the story of Jesus’ crucifixion from Mark, and will learn what happened next. There have been many theories of what happened to Jesus’ body when He was taken from the cross. Some believe that the disciples hid him away and that He didn’t really die, and others believed His body was stolen from the tomb so that we would think He rose. How do we really know what happened to Jesus’ body? We can find the answers in the Bible. Kids can know that the evidence proves that Jesus’ death was real. There were many witnesses there who could testify to that. We know that Joseph of Arimathea asked for Jesus’ body to bury, and He did just that. The body could not have been stolen because a huge stone was rolled in front of the tomb, and guards were posted outside to keep anyone from taking the body. Jesus had told His disciples He would die and that He would rise again. He knew what God’s plan for Him was.
How amazing is it that we have a heavenly Father that loves us so much that He sent His Son to die for our sins? I am also thankful that God gave us the Bible to go to when we have questions. In this day and age people are always questioning and trying to prove or disprove what they have been taught. Thankfully we know that every word in the Bible is God’s Truth, and therefore we know that Jesus really died and rose again.
