10 day Easter Countdown

In November I said I’d like to make an ‘advent calendar’ for Easter as an extention of our pictoral (& Scriptural) advent calendar. I may have under-estimated this task, & am therefore presenting a 10 day countdown, with the hope of extending it to 40 days next year.

Here is the propsed outline:

Day 1 (Friday  before Good Friday) dove &/or alabastar jar

Jesus the annointed one – Matt 3:16-17 & Isaiah 61:1-2 (Luke 4) & Matt 26:6-13

 

Day 2 (Saturday) bag of coins

Jesus betrayed for a bag of coins – Matt 26:14-16 & 46-56

 

Day 3 (Sunday) Rooster

Jesus denied – Matt 26:30-35 & 69-75 (Matt 26:56)

 

Day 4 (Monday) Black

Darkness – Matt 27:45-54

 

Day 5 (Tuesday) Red

Pierced for us – Isaiah 53:5 & John 19:31-38

 

Day 6 (Wednesday) Nails

Nailed to the cross – Colossians 2:13-15

 

Day 7 (Thursday) dead branch/wood

The curse – Galatians 3:10-14 (& Gen 3)

 

Day 8 (Good Friday) 3 crosses

Thieves – Luke 23:32-43

 

Day 9 (Saturday) Heart

God’s love – John 1:12-13 & John 3:11-21

 

Day 10 (Easter Sunday) Loud hailer

The Great Commission – Matthew 28:16-20

 

 

I hope to post more detail on each day as we go along… So see you back here.
