Pictured above are some of the hundreds of entries for our Easter competition included with this year's Real Easter Egg.
The competition was to answer ten questions about that first Holy Week and Easter. The first five answers could be found in our story book while the next five need a little more research.
The Junior category only had to answer the first five questions (though we didn’t penalise those who had a go at all ten) while the Seniors had to have a go at all ten. We accepted answers which made any correct points. Winners of each category will receive £50 worth of book tokens while two runners up in each category will get £25 worth of tokens. Read below for the answers and the winners.
- The people waved palm branches/leaves when Jesus entered Jerusalem.
- Jesus washed His friends’ feet on the Thursday.
- Jesus shared wine with His friends at his supper.
- Pontius Pilate or just Pilate put Jesus on trial. (We accepted answers that referred to the Sanhedrin).
- Jesus rose from the dead/was resurrected/was risen from the dead/rose again on Easter Sunday.
