“Easter Customs and Jesus Christ,” is the title of our newest StandingWatch program–presented by Evangelist Norbert Link. Here is a summary: What is the origin of Easter and its customs? What do Easter eggs and the Easter bunny have to do with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ? When did Christ die, and when was He resurrected? Did you know that Easter is not only a pagan festival, but closely connected with a belief in communication with demons?
This program will also be broadcast on radio for two weeks, beginning Saturday, March 23.
“Neu! Christi Erstes Kommen, Teil 1,” is the title of this week’s German sermon. It’s the first part of a two-part series on Christ’s First Coming.

The second part will cover the events in 31 AD. (These two sermons will also be given in English during the next two Sabbath services in the U.S.).
