Saturday is the last day of the week. It was named for the Roman god, Saturn. The planet Saturn was also named for this god.
The planet Saturn has seven rings around it. For a long time, no one knew about these rings. Why? Because we can’t see these rings with our eyes. We need a telescope to clearly see the rings. When people were able to use telescopes, they learned more things about the planet.
While Jesus was living on earth, He told His disciples many things. Jesus told them that He would need to die. But the disciples did not understand what He meant.
Our Bible Reading today tells us about Jesus’ burial and resurrection. After Jesus arose, the disciples understood more about Him. They learned why He came to earth and why He had to die.
Scientists can learn more about Saturn by using a telescope. We can learn more about Jesus by studying His Word, the Bible.
