  1. God came to earth in Jesus (vertical line) to show us how wide is Godís love for us (horizontal line), which was revealed on the cross.
  2. Evil tried to keep the news of Jesusí resurrection away from his disciples (V-shaped shields in each quadrant)
  3. God sent angels to roll away the stone for Mary Magdalene (make a curved line from top of cross to top of A quadrant shield)
  4. Mary Magdalene runs to tell the disciples (make a curved line from A dot to top of B quadrant shield)
  5. Peter and the other disciple run and see that the stone is rolled away, and the tomb is empty (make a curved line from the B dot to the horizontal part of the A quadrant shield)
  6. A disciple and Cleopas try to get away by walking to Emmaus, and they are joined by a stranger who reveals to them the resurrection as part of Godís plan (make a curved line from the horizontal part of B quadrant [across the outside and over the top] to the right horizontal part of the cross)
  7. These two disciples go back to Jerusalem to find the other disciples to tell them that Jesus is risen and has appeared to them.The other disciples are hiding behind locked doors.(from the left horizontal part of the cross, make a curved line that circles over the top and to the horizontal part of the D quadrant shield)
  8. Thomas joins the disciples in the upper room the next week (from the horizontal part of shield in C quadrant, make a curved line that circles over the top to the D dot[disciples])
  9. Jesus appears to Thomas with the other disciples, though he could have appeared wherever Thomas was (from the C dot, make a curved line that circles over the top to the vertical end of the D shield)
  10. The disciples now know that Jesus is risen indeed, and this good news is for the whole world (from the vertical end of the C quadrant shield, make a curved line that circles around to the vertical end of the D quadrant shield)
