Ian says that Easter is perhaps the biggest holiday celebrated by Mormons. Ian talks about this important subject with his wife Sienna and his friend Elisabeth.
First, Sienna brings up Mormons and Holy Week. Elisabeth says that growing up, her mom made sure to emphasize each day of Holy Week in preparation for Easter.
The 3 Mormons then go through the different days of Holy Week, starting with Palm Sunday. Jesus Christ came back to Jerusalem on a donkey.
On Monday, Jesus Christ cleansed the temple and taught of the sacredness of the temple. Then on Maundy Thursday, the Passover occured. Christ taught his disciples at the Last Supper. Then Peter, James and John followed Christ to the Garden of Gethsemane where he suffered for all of the children of God. Jesus suffered because He loves us. After Jesus died, He was placed in a tomb. Finally, Jesus Christ was resurrected, the most important event in the history of humankind.
Mormons don’t use the cross as the symbol of faith, but rather, they focus on the life and power of the Savior in overcoming death.
