Easter… or rather Resurrection Day is easily the most important day in the life of Jesus and all of humanity. Because of this, I wanted to create a very special collection of Easter Resurrection Day Bible Journal Templates to aid in studying this important day in history.

What are the Scriptures used in these Easter Resurrection Day Bible Journal Templates?
When selecting which verses in scripture to use, I studied and prayed about which ones to use. There were several, as the story is told throughout several books in the Bible, but as I spent time in the word it became obvious which scriptures I needed to highlight as Bible journal templates.
Immediately the rooster crowed the second time. Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken to him: “Before the rooster crows twice you will disown me three times.” And he broke down and wept.Mark 14:72
This verse shows that even though Peter knew Jesus personally- knowing who he really was- that ultimately he would deny Jesus. Even though Peter was warned about this, he still caved to the fear of others and still disowned Jesus and that bothered Peter.
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”Luke 23:34
This verse is the epitome of agape love. The ultimate and selfless love of Jesus Christ. There he was, nailed to the cross and tortured for all our sins. He knew this day was coming, yet he continued to walk in his calling. In the midst of all his physical pains he still asked forgiveness of the very people hurting him during his most trying time on earth.
I chose to draw a bouquet of tulips because not only are they a staple-spring flower, but they are also considered a flower of forgiveness.
About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).Matthew 27:46
This could almost seem like a breaking point for Jesus. He knew his destiny, but life was really hard for him in this moment. Isn’t this question to God relatable to our own lives? Have you felt like God has forsaken you before? This particular scripture jumped out at me and I knew just the Bible journal template I wanted to create for it.
Forget-me-not flowers frame the words of this verse. As a mother who has walked through miscarriage and pregnancy loss, these flowers and what they represent hold a tender place in my heart. It was only natural that I used them for this printable.
And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, saw how he died, he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!”Mark 15:39
Can you imagine being the centurion standing there, witnessing what he did? The flood of emotions running through his mind and heart in that moment. This verse makes me stop and ponder that moment in time.
Carnations were used to decorate this template. The symbolic meaning of the flower is said to derive from a couple of different places. Some suggest “carnation” comes from the word “corone” (flower garlands) or “coronation” because of its use in Greek ceremonial crowns, others propose that it’s derived from the Latin “carnis” (flesh) referring to the flower’s original pinkish-hued color or “incarnacyon” (incarnation), referring to the incarnation of God-made flesh.
He is not here; he has risen!Luke 24:6a
Arguably one of the most significant verses in the entire Bible, this verse stands as the moment everything became worth it. Not only was Jesus born, performed miracles, spread truth, and died on the cross, but he rose from the dead just as God planned. Praise The Lord!!
This template needed to hold significance in its design. A simple banner declaring the truth, backed by leaves from a resurrection fern. This plant can lose up to 75-97% of its water and still survive! In drought, it will shrivel up and seem dead, but at its next rain, it comes back to life!
Then he said to him, “Follow me!”John 21:19b
Jesus didn’t go through all of that for nothing, right? Jesus was beaten, tortured, and died for every single one of us. He loves us unconditionally and wants to be with us always. He wants us to follow him anywhere.
No these designs aren’t the Bible it’s self, but more of an analogy. This Bible journal template shows tools used to follow directions and if used properly can help you find your way.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”Matthew 28:19-20
To conclude the Resurrection of Jesus, he leaves us with a task. Perhaps the single most important task as followers of Jesus Christ… to spread the good news of what Jesus did for every single one of us.
It doesn’t matter which direction or path we take, we are to tell of Jesus and what he did for us everywhere we go.
