The seasons of the Christian Year were created by the early church to support its underlying mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ who is transforming the world. Easter isn't just a single day in the Christian Year. It's a season of 50 days, starting with celebration of the resurrection of Jesus on Easter, and concluding with the celebration of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit that catalyzed the birth of the church on Pentecost (day 50).
During Lent, the church forms persons in the habits, the core behaviors, of discipleship. During Easter, the church forms people in the key doctrines of the faith and prepares persons to claim the gifts of the Spirit for their ministry as Christ's disciples and apostles to the world. Put another way, if the 40 days of Lent are Rehab, the 50 days of Easter are boot camp preparing persons to live out the gifts and ministries the Spirit has birthed in them in the name of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit.
The first readings from Acts are drawn from the same story of apostles John and Peter who bring healing to a person born with a serious disability and thereby delivering him from a life doomed to being a beggar, all in the name of Jesus. Healing is at the core of the ministry of Jesus, then and now. Our first Easter series, "In the Name of Jesus," explores the core dynamics of testimony, faith, and God's saving power made available to all in his name.
