The Star Wars Lego Easter Story

A Long Time Ago On A Sofa Far Far Away…

… well a couple of years ago…

There was a collection of Easter / Passion stories told on Twitter under the banner of #EasterLive, which the The Church Sofa joined in with… and well… we decided to try and be different, and ask: What would happen if the Rebel Alliance, and the Empire decided to put aside their differences for one moment, and put on an Easter play? How would that go? We tried to find out by using a collection of Star Wars Lego related photos.

Well, as Easter is coming up, it felt like a good time to repeat the collection of Lego photos telling the Easter story.. Please feel free to drop us an email if you have any questions about it:

“Go to the village ahead of you”

PalmSunday: Mark Chapter 4 - Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King   1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 3 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.’”

8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. 9 Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted,     “Hosanna![a]”     “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[b]   10 “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!”     “Hosanna in the highest heaven!”   11 Jesus entered Jerusalem and went into the temple courts. He looked around at everything, but since it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the Twelve.

Turning The Temple Tables 

 15 On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple courts and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts. 17 And as he taught them, he said, “Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’[c]? But you have made it ‘a den of robbers.’[d]”   18 The chief priests and the teachers of the law heard this and began looking for a way to kill him, for they feared him, because the whole crowd was amazed at his teaching.
