Summary:
A young boy, Daniel, witnesses the death of Jesus by crucifixion on Calvary where a Roman Centurion confirms, "Truly this man was the son of God." Storms rage and an earthquake shakes the land at Jesus’ death.

Daniel hurries back to the Disciples, who are hiding from Roman soldiers, with the news of Jesus’ death. Meanwhile, Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus prepare Jesus’ body, bury it in a tomb cut into a hillside and cover the entrance with a huge stone.

Caiaphas, the Pharisee high priest, who did not accept Jesus as the Messiah, visits Pontius Pilate, counseling Pilate to seal the tomb since Jesus’ followers said He would rise from death on the third day. Pilate agrees and posts guards, but angels appear and the tomb splits open in a glorious burst of light. Jesus first appears to Mary Magdalene when she visits the empty tomb. Then Jesus appears to the Disciples. He entrusts Simon Peter to take care of His "lambs and sheep", and preaches for 40 days, asking His followers to teach His words to all peoples, everywhere.

His mission on earth completed, Jesus ascends into heaven in a stirring climax to the video, telling His followers He will come again. "Come quickly, Lord Jesus," says the boy Daniel. "I’ll always be watching for You."

Background:
Celebration of Good Friday and Easter commemorates Jesus’ death and resurrection – the core of Christianity. Jesus died to break the power of sin and to restore our relationship with God. The resurrection assures us of our eternal life-victory over death, symbolizing hope for all humanity. Jesus called His Disciples to spread the good news of the Gospel, a call that speaks to us today.
