This set includes twelve pastel wooden eggs nested in a specially woven traditional egg basket. Each of the eggs contains a piece of the story of Christ’s resurrection, from Gethsemane to the empty tomb, along with a tangible symbol that will bring the story to life. Each Easter symbol tucked inside these wooden eggs is a high quality item, including hand carved olive wood cups and crosses from the Holy Land, strips of linen, and handmade olive oil and beeswax soap. “Thirty pieces of silver” is represented by antique Israeli argorot coins (the word argorot means “piece of silver” in Hebrew.) Every symbol was carefully chosen and the scriptures that accompany them were given just as much thought. We scoured the King James Version of the Bible to find scriptures that not only tell the story, but the reasons and doctrines behind it. For example, instead of just stating that Christ was bound in the garden of Gethsemane, the scripture points out that Christ allowed himself to be taken to be crucified when he could have called down legions of angels to save him.
With quality items and poignant scriptures, our Easter Story Eggs are pure heirloom magic, a tradition to anchor you and your family to the true story of Easter year after year.
