Instead of a normal recipe for this week’s Monday Meals, I opted to share our Easter lunch menu with you. We came up with Bible verses to go along with all the dishes.
“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I have longed to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were unwilling.” – Matthew 23:37
Christian (not Jewish) Ham
“I am the Good Shepherd; the Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. – John 10:11
“Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, and a branch from His roots will bear fruit.” – Isaiah 11:11
Green Bean Casserole
“And after twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand; and they knelt down and mocked Him, saying, ‘Hail, King of the Jews!’” – Matthew 27:29
“But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.” – John 19:34
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
“We esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening of our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging, we are healed.” – Isaiah 53:4-5
“You have grief now, but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you.” – John 16:22
“The thief comes to kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” – John 10:10
“He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said.” – Matthew 28:6
“Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool.” – Isaiah 1:18
Happy Easter! He is risen!
