Benjamin's Box tells Easter story through child's eyes

Story complements the Resurrection Egg project.

What's in Benjamin's box? Children of the parish found out Sunday during a reading of Benjamin's Box at the Faith First Easter egg hunt.

When Jesus comes to Jerusalem, a curious young boy named Benjamin decides to follow him and find out who he really is. Along the way, he collects various mementos to put in his box, including a leather thong from Jesus' sandal and fabric from his tunic.

The story can be used in conjunction with the Resurrection Egg project from Family Life. In the resurrection egg project, 12 colorful eggs contain symbols that illustrate the events in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.

Using the book and Resurrection Egg project is a meaningful way to celebrate and share the life, death and resurrection of Jesus with friends and family.
