‘Twas the Morning of Easter

Twas the Morning of Easter CoverLong ago, a group of women walked through the darkness of night into a garden. As the first hint of dawn began to breach the horizon, they neared their destination. Confusion and fear clung to them, but love compelled them forward. Suddenly, an earthquake shattered the silence, announcing the advent of a new world. Within minutes the women became the first evangelists of the good news that the tomb was empty, Jesus rose, and the Kingdom of God was still at hand.

In a beautiful children’s book, ‘Twas the Morning of Easter (Zonderkidz), the story of Mary Magdalene and the women who accompanied her to the garden tomb of Jesus is wonderfully offered by writer Glenys Nellist. Perhaps even more impressive is the artistry of the illustrator, Elena Selivanova. Rich in color and detail, every page is lovely enough to capture the appreciation of a child. With its artistry and rhythmic writing, ‘Twas the Morning of Easter reflects the joy and hope that is deeply embedded in the Easter story.

The resurrection of Jesus changed everything. Easter means that the brutal powers of this world will be shaken, that despair will give way to joy, that darkness must yield to light. Rome doesn’t win, hatred and sin and injustice will not stand forever, the resurrection will conquer death. ‘Twas the Morning of Easter joyfully reminds us that in the end, Jesus wins. 

Christ has risen. He has risen indeed.
