Product Description

Some of the most recognized verses in all of scripture reflect the triumph of Easter: “And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him” (Mark 16:6). This volume is a collection of essays from the 2006 BYU Easter Conference and reflects some of the ways in which we think about Easter.

Topics range from direct studies about how Latter-day Saints celebrate and teach Easter to technical aspects of the Savior’s trial and His Jewish antagonists’ approach to His miracles. Edited by Thomas A. Wayment and Keith J. Wilson, the book includes chapters by Elder Cecil O. Samuelson, BYU academic vice president John S. Tanner, and Religious Education dean Terry B. Ball.
