One Birth, One Death, One Resurrection

My friend was telling me that she was talking to her grand-daughter about Christmas and how the world celebrates the birth of Jesus at this time.

The child then asked, "And then it is Easter again?"

"Yes," my friend replied.

"Is that when they crucified Jesus and He rose again?" she asked.

"Yes, that's right," was the reply.

"Is He crucified and resurrected every year?" she asked.

"No, it's rather like your birthday. Every year we just celebrate it. You don't get born every year and Jesus doesn't die every year."

"For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit . . . " 1 Peter 3:18a
