“The King of Easter! Whom will he find and save?”
Following Jesus’s journey from his birth to the cross, his resurrection, and beyond, and featuring a family prayer, The King of Easter reminds us of the meaning of Easter and Jesus’s power to save.
Join FatCat and follow Jesus as he seeks and saves the lost. Whether friends or enemies—if they are lost, Jesus came to seek and save them. At every step, he brings his new friends to join the search.
As Jesus journeys to the cross, he finds and saves people—from his mother, Mary, at his birth, to the thief on the cross beside him. But the Easter story doesn’t end at the cross, for Jesus is risen! From Mary Magdalene, who searched for him at the empty tomb, to Saul, who killed Jesus’s friends, Jesus continues to save.
What about you? Has Jesus saved you? The King of Easter still seeks and saves the lost, and he is seeking you today. Happy Easter to all God’s children!
How can anyone, no matter how young or old, grasp the message of the Bible? The church’s answer has always been the catechism: The Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, and the Ten Commandments.
The catechism teaches us what the Bible teaches us: our faith. The catechism is “fat,” bursting at the seams with meaning and challenge. FatCat is our way of making the catechism approachable, bringing theology to readers of all ages.
