We love the Easter holiday festival celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. Let these Easter Movies on Netflix inspire you to get into the holiday spirit.
Easter Sunday or Resurrection Sunday is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD.
It is the culmination of the Passion of Jesus, preceded by Lent (or Great Lent), a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. (Source)
