Use this secular YouTube video to hold a creative discussion with the children about the resurrection of Jesus
This video shows the birth of the Easter bunny, a little rabbit that is born from a rabbit and a chicken, and who lays a brightly coloured egg each time he is afraid. He gets bullied because of this, and eventually runs away from home. In the town he finally finds recognition, but realises that the only place he really wants to be is with his parents; he goes back home.
This idea is part of a complete Sunday school lesson on the Easter Bible story in Luke 24:1-12.
This video will help the children in your Sunday school lesson, youth ministry, Bible lesson, VBS, kidmin, children’s church or children’s ministry to reflect on this powerful Bible passage.
Why is this film applicable to the story of the resurrection?
Obviously the Easter bunny doesn’t exist, so why watch a film about the Easter bunny to talk about the resurrection of Jesus? You can use it to talk about the secular celebrations of Easter, such as the Easter bunny, and the true meaning of Easter.
It’s important to always watch the film yourself beforehand and to ask yourself:
- do I want to show this to the children?
- does this film work in the context and age-range of the children I am working with?
