Resurrection Sunday services planned
CHRONICLE STAFF REPORT
As Lenten season ends,
Christians prepare for the most glo
rious day in Christianity.
Resurrection Day is when Jesus the
Christ rose from the grave, having
sacrificed His life for mankind.
Some churches mark Lent with
a wooden cross draped in purple
cloth on their property. One expla
nation of the practice is that "Colors
associated with Lent are primarily
purple and violet, which are the
Western liturgical colors symboliz
ing the suffering of Jesus prior to
crucifixion and the suffering of
humanity and the world. They are
also the colors of royalty, symboliz
ing the coming Resurrection on
Easter Sunday." (From
http://www.presbyterian .org .nz.)
The week preceding Easter is
known as Holy Week. It begins on
Palm Sunday and is traditionally a
week of somber reflection on the F~
events preceding Jesus' death: His Ef
triumphant entry into Jerusalem; f
His cleansing of the temple; His H|
betrayal by Judas; His Last Supper I
with His 12 apostles; His arrest, I
crucifixion and death; and His bur- I
ial in a tomb.
Holy Week ends on Holy I

Lesson Scripture: 2 Corinthians 15:1-11,20-22
By the end of this lesson, we should:
? Accept Christ's Resurrection without doubting
? Understand that without it, our faith is bogus
? Rejoice that our new life is assured because of the
Background: The New Testament churches weren't
very different from us today. They were in the process of
becoming "new creations ."They faced numerous con
flicts. Paul often referred to them as "carnal" because
they continued to live like the pagans. He founded the
church at Corinth during his second journey and
remained there for 18 months, teaching and modeling the
"new creature." About five years later, he got word of the
church's problems. There were lots of them, ranging from
ly break ups,
put, this epistle
to resolve prob
.i.. lams in the church. Chapters 1-14 focused on each issue.
Lesson: For the Greeks, they accept Jesus' message
and His suffering but don't comprehend His
Resurrection. You see, they understand the physical body
as the house of the immortal soul; some can't envision a
physical resurrection. Paul's approaches the issue based
on what he taught them at first. The Gospel is simple -
Jesus died for our sins; was buried; and rose from the
dead on the third day. If they don't believe all of this, their
conversion is in vain. Believing all of this is their
