Lent – Easter Reader

Easter Reader is designed to help individuals and churches reflect on the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.

The readings start on 1st March and work their way up to Easter Monday on 13th April, spanning 6 weeks.

For many of us, Easter comes and goes so quickly we barely have time to stop and consider again the breath-taking wonder of what God has done for us through Jesus.

The Easter reader invites us to slow down and enter the story of Jesus afresh. Each week of readings begin with a short reflection, which introduces the readings for the week.

The Easter reader (written by the Scottish Bible Society) suggests four simple, open questions, the first of which is, “What jumped out at you for the first time?” to help us hear God speak afresh through his Word.

The readings themselves cover three broad themes:

The Son – Meditating on how God reveals himself to humanity through Jesus, Jesus’ ministry of teaching, healing and exorcism, and the words Jesus uses to describe himself.

His Kingdom Comes – Proclaiming the truth that the Lord is king over all the earth, reading of God’s promise of a coming king, Christ’s declaration and explanation of the Kingdom, and culminating with a glimpse towards the day when the kingdom of the world becomes the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah, when he will reign for ever and ever.

A Triumphant King – Journeying through the Easter story, exploring the reality and wonder of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
