Easter: ‘The best story in the world ever?’

‘Once upon a time…’ What classic stories spring to mind when you hear this phrase?

A great quest? Overcoming a monster? Love lost and found? – We all love a good fairytale ending

The story of Easter echoes all of these themes. Look closely and you will find an enemy, a hero and a mission to be completed.

This video invites us to look again at the Easter story. What if this fairytale is the truth? What if Jesus really is the hero?

Possible Discussion Questions

  • In what ways is the ‘myth’ in the video the same as the Easter story?
