The Essence of Easter

Mark 15:33-16:8  (ID: 1185)

In a culture where Christian and pagan traditions have become interwoven, it can be difficult to determine the meaning behind the celebration of Easter. With the goal of achieving biblical clarity in the midst of secular confusion, Alistair Begg challenges us to consider what Easter means for the Christian. Understanding the essence of Easter begins by recognizing the effects of sin and the foundational truth of the empty tomb.
