Easter Bible Studies #1 – He Chose the Nails by Max Lucado

Easter Bible Study He Chose the Nails

From Creation to today, God has showered us with His love. The crowning act of His love, of course, was the gift of the Cross. Who would have imagined that a crude instrument of execution would be so dearly treasured for thousands of years afterward? But, who also could have imagined the depths of Jesus’ love for His people expressed in His sacrifice? In this five-session video Bible study for Easter, Max Lucado dives deep into the gifts of the Cross — the thorns, the nails, the robe, the empty tomb. There isn’t a part of Jesus’ journey through hell to His resurrection that isn’t miraculous and an unfathomable gift… of love… just for you!

Easter Bible Studies #2 – Death and Resurrection of the Messiah by Ray Vander Laan

Death and Resurrection of the Messiah Ray Vander Laan

In the Death and Resurrection of the Messiah Bible study - a solid choice for the weeks leading up to Easter -- Ray Vander Laan takes you on a journey to the Holy Land — from the Sea of Galilee, to Caesarea Philippi, to the Mount of Olives, to Gethsemane. As he traces Jesus’ steps in this ten-session study (part of the That the World May Know series), Ray shares his vast knowledge of Israel’s culture, history, geography, and Jewish social customs in a beautiful story-telling way that will give you new insights into Jesus' life… and His death and resurrection… and how those profound, historical, world-rocking events can affect your life today.

Easter Bible Studies #3 – The Case for Easter by Lee Strobel


The Case for Easter Lee Strobel Easter Bible Study


In this four-week study for Easter, former legal journalist Lee Strobel investigates the story surrounding the resurrection of Jesus—and how we can know that it is true. The Case for Easter video Bible study invites participants to examine the evidence for themselves and consider whether the story of Jesus' resurrection makes sense. It will point them to the inescapable conclusion that led Lee from atheism to Christianity: Jesus was the Son of God who conquered the grave. 

Easter Bible Studies #4 – The Story of Jesus by Randy Frazee

The Story of Jesus videos are from the The Story Curriculum, which many people do as a year-long study and as a companion to the bestselling book, The Story. If you are looking for just 3 sessions to focus on before Easter, we recommend these:

Session 6: The Resurrection (duration: 12 minutes)
Session 7: New Beginnings (duration: 11:21 minutes) 

Easter Bible Studies #5 – Why Easter Matters by Andy Stanley

In this four-session study, pastor Andy Stanley explores the lives of 4 unique groups of people in the Bible - Joseph Caiaphas, Judas Iscariot, the two criminals on the crosses next to Jesus, and the disciples and other followers of Jesus - who found their world turned upside down when the one they believed to be the Messiah was first put to death . . . and then rose again.
