“At Easter, perhaps more than at any other time of the year, Christians love to retell the story of Jesus, and especially of his last days on Earth,” a Kim Lawton said in an article by pbs.org.
Telling the story of Jesus is “entering into the story,” noted Walt Wangerin Jr., the writer-in-residence in Valparaiso University. He also explained the importance of retelling Jesus story in “shaping our minds.”
He said, “When the story is told, we enter into the story, we become a part of it -- and now here's the important part -- and it shapes us. It shapes our spirit, it shapes our capacity for interpreting the universe much more than any kind of intellectual doctrine can shape us.”
Lawton noted that retelling the stories of Jesus has been done through popular culture, through the years, pointing out music while art can not be ruled out as an effective way to introduce Jesus and his Easter story to the young minds.
“Over the centuries, the Passion has been retold in numerous ways: through art and through music, such as Haydn's classic Easter piece, "The Seven Last Words of Christ," Lawton was quoted as saying in Religions and Ethics News Weekly.
And what is the greatest story ever told? Author Fulton Oursler has one for you: "Author Fulton Oursler called it THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD a story that includes betrayal, abandonment, crucifixion, resurrection, and redemption. People continue to retrace and explore that story, which Christians call the Passion of Christ."
