At Easter there are bunnies, candy, and eggs. An empty egg reminds us that the tomb is empty, for Jesus has risen. (I wrote the scripture reference on the outside of each egg)
#1 Matthew 26: 39 (Sacrament Cup)
#2 Matthew 26: 14-15 (3 dimes)
#3 Matthew 26: 48 (Chocolate kiss)
#4 Matthew 27: 1-2 (Knotted twine/rope)
#5 Matthew 27: 24-26 (Soap)
When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person; see ye to it. Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children. Then released he Barabbas unto them; and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.
#6 Matthew 27: 28-30 (Red felt or silk - rose thorns or tacks)
And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe. And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand; and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him saying, Hail, King of the Jews! And they spit upon him, and took the reed and smote him on the head.
#7 Matthew 27: 31-32 (Nail)
And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him. And he was crucified. Nailed to the cross.
#8 Matthew 27: 51 (small baggy of dirt)
And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, ... my God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? and Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. And the veil of the temple was rent in twine from the top to bottom. (and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent).
#9 Matthew 27: 59-60 (Rock/pebble)
#10 Mark 16:1 (Spices/whole cloves)
And when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had brought sweet spices that they might come and anoint him. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for the angle of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye; for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
# 11 Matthew 28:6 (empty egg)
An of course sugar cookie eggs.
(Brady's testimony he is closing with - written by Brady) I would like to bear my testimony in saying that I know Jesus Christ lived, and died on the cross, and that he opened up the heavens, and allowed us to repent for our sins, so we could return to our Heavenly Father. I know that He lives, and I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
