For those of us who are followers of Christ, Easter is in fact maybe the most important holiday of all. If you wanted to understand the Resurrection in more detail, I would suggest reading the Book of Matthew, which is the first book of the New Testament And also the beginning Chapters of the Book of Mark. The specific chapters where most of the important part are found in Matthew 27 & 28 as well as Mark 15 & 16. Of course Mel Gibson produced one of the most dramatic heart touching movies of all, The Passion of The Christ.
As a christian parent, I would not advise you allowing your young child to see that movie. It is VERY GRAPHIC. And I don't think that young children could even fully understand nor follow the movie. Its pretty long. But last year I made the decision that I wanted to bring back the true meaning of Easter. Now keep in mind, my children like all children love the Easter Bunny. I didn't completely eject him out of the equation. But for their religious curiosity, I had to find a way to explain the Easter story in a more kid-friendly manner. Last year I found the perfect solution on You Tube of all places!!!!
