What caused God to send His beloved Son to live among us, die for us, and be raised from the dead? In this The First Easter book, children ages 5-9 will meet Jesus at His baptism in the Jordan River, go with Him into the desert to be tested by the devil, and then see Him preach the Good News, heal the sick, and drive out demons. They will cheer with the crowds as Jesus enters Jerusalem to the shouts of Hosanna and the waving of palm branches, and they will sit near Him at the Last Supper. What was it like to pray with Jesus in Gethsemane, walk with Him on the way of the cross, or wait with the women on the third day? As children relive the astonishing story of Jesus' sacrifice for us, they will discover how He gave us the power of His Holy Spirit.
