Easter Story Bracelet
Easter is a special Christian holiday that commemorates the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. Just as it had been predicted in Scripture, He was crucified by Roman soldiers on the eve of the Jewish Passover. He rose from the dead the following Sunday and appeared to his followers many times before ascending into heaven.
Easter is Sunday, March 31, 2013.
Proclaim the resurrection of Jesus on your wrist with an Easter Story Bracelet this Lenten season! Our Easter Story Bracelet is made with genuine Swarovski Crystals and unique Bali beads.
Each crystal and charm on our Easter Story Bracelet represents a different aspect of the Easter story. The Easter Story, printed on fine quality paper, is included with each bracelet.
Many churches also observe the season of Lent, beginning 46 days before Easter on Ash Wednesday. One week before Easter, Palm Sunday is celebrated to commemorate Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The Friday before Easter, Good Friday, helps us remember Jesus' crucifixion. An Easter Story Bracelet will be a special reminder of Jesus' death and resurrection.
The Easter Story
One week before His death, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. The people waved palm branches (green) and worshipped Him.
Jesus shared the Last Supper with His disciples breaking bread (His body) and offering (red) wine (His blood). Later that evening He was betrayed by Judas, one of His own disciples, with a kiss.
Soldiers placed a crown of thorns (brown) on Jesus' head and beat Him until he bled (red). He later carried His own cross to the top of Golgotha Hill were He was nailed to it and crucified. When Jesus exhaled His last breath, the veil (purple) in the temple was torn from top to bottom.
Spices (brown) were used to prepare Jesus for burial, he was wrapped in linen cloths (white), and laid in the tomb. The next morning, the stone covering Jesus' tomb had been rolled away and He was not there.
He has risen (yellow) and will come again!
