The Easter Story: According to the Gospels of Matthew, Luke, and John

Front Cover
Holt, 1999 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 31 pages
The story of Christ's death on the cross and his resurrection three days later is the central drama of Christianity. Gennady Spirin elegantly depicts the events leading up to and following the crucifixion, from Christ's entry into Jerusalem to the Last Supper to the descent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples.

He portrays Jesus as the light that came into a somber world of sin, and ends the book with the promise of the resurrection.
