Eyes On Jesus: Theme And Scripture

  • Easter Sunday, April 12
  • Angel Eyes
  • Mark 16:1–8

Early on Easter morning, the angel, which means “messenger,” announced what he knew to be true: the tomb was empty because Christ had risen. The women were initially overcome with fear, as anyone would be if confronted by a holy herald from God. Their physical eyes would not see our Lord until He revealed Himself. But we have been given the angel’s eyes, as it were, for by faith we see our Lord with us now. The news the angel proclaimed is too good to keep to ourselves. As God’s messengers today, it is our turn to tell the world that He is risen indeed! 

Eyes on Jesus asks us to look at Jesus through various biblical characters’ viewpoints, learning how they viewed Jesus. Did they misunderstand Him? Did they recognize Him as the Son of God? With Bible passages from the Gospel of Mark, challenge yourself to consider what you see when you look at Jesus.
