The Cross
Not just a symbol of Easter, the cross is probably the most common symbol of Christianity. It symbolizes the sacrifice Jesus made to die for the sins of mankind. An empty cross without the figure of Christ crucifiedreminds Christians of Jesus victory over death and the new life and hope this victory brings to those who choose to follow him.

The Lamb
Jesus is associated with the lamb. Jews celebrate the festival of Passover to commemorate the blood of the Passover lamb, which caused the angel of death to pass over the Israelites. John the Baptist called Jesus the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29).

Easter Eggs
Ever since the chicken or the egg came first, people have decorated eggs to celebrate continuing and renewed life. Christians began using eggs to symbolize the rebirth of mankind, and they liken the egg symbol to the tomb from which Christ arose.

The Donkey
Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey in fulfillment of the prophecy in Zechariah 9:9. While many believe that Christ rode on a donkey as an example of humility and meekness, others observe that it was a perfectly respectable ride. While horses were animals of warthe mounts of conquerorsdonkeys were ridden by non-military people of rank. So Christ came, not as conqueror, but as the message-bearer of peace.
