A Swedenborgian Easter Story

The story of Christ’s death and resurrection is not only well known, but the basis of Christian faith. The full account can be found in the New Testament of the Bible in Matthew 27 & 28, Mark 15 & 16, Luke 23 & 24, and John 19 & 20 (our preferred online NRSV Bible resource can be found here).

But for Emanuel Swedenborg, the story of Easter held complex meanings and is full of deep symbolism. Our friends at the Swedenborg Foundation created a thoughtful and very thorough study on Swedenborg’s Easter, which we highly recommend:
