Scripture: Matthew 28:5-6
“The angel answered and said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.’” NKJV
The following recipe was found deep within the ccm “Future cdd” file. Not sure where it came from, but Pastor Carol and I took the time to bake the cookies. We recommend the recipe for all ages to creatively explain the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Suggestion: (Make the evening before Easter)
Required Items:
Wax Paper
Cookie Sheet
Zipper baggie
Wooden spoon
One pinch salt
One Cup sugar
No residue tape
Three egg whites
One Teaspoon vinegar
One Cup whole pecans
PREHEAT oven to 300 degrees.
Place pecans in zipper baggie and let children beat them with the wooden spoon to break into small pieces. Explain that after Jesus was arrested, He was beaten by the Roman soldiers. (Read John 19:1-3)
Let each child smell the vinegar. Put 1 teaspoon vinegar into mixing bowl. Explain that when Jesus was thirsty on the Cross, he was given vinegar to drink. (Read John 19:28-30)
Add egg whites to vinegar. Eggs represent life. Explain that Jesus gave His life to give us life. (Read John 10:10-11)
Sprinkle a little salt into each child’s hand. Let them taste it and brush the rest into the bowl. Explain that this represents the salty tears shed by Jesus’ followers, and the bitterness of our own sin. (Read Luke 23:27)
So far, the ingredients are not very appetizing. Add 1 cup sugar. Explain that the sweetest part of the narrative is that Jesus died because He loves us. He wants us to know and belong to Him. (Read Psalm 34:8 and John 3:16)
Beat with a mixer on high speed for 12 to 15 minutes until stiff peaks are formed. Explain that the color white represents the purity in God’s eyes of those whose sins have been cleansed by Jesus. (Read Isaiah 1:18 and John 3:1-3)
Fold in broken nuts. Drop by teaspoon (smaller is better) onto wax paper covered cookie sheet. Explain that each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus’ body was laid. (Read Matthew 27:57-60)
Put the cookie sheet in the oven, close the door and turn the oven OFF.
Give each child a piece of Heat resistant tape and seal the oven door. Explain that Jesus’ tomb was sealed. (Read Matthew 27:65-66)
GO TO BED! Explain that they may feel sad to leave the cookies in the oven overnight. Jesus’ followers were sad when the tomb was sealed. (Read John 16:20 and 16:22)
On Easter morning, open the oven and give everyone a cookie. Notice the cracked surface and take a bite. The cookies are hollow! Explain that on the first Easter Jesus’ followers were amazed to find the tomb open and empty. (Read Matthew 28:1-9)
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Prayer: Father thank you for creative ways to share what Jesus did for us with as many people as possible. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!
