The Story of the Easter Robin

The Story of the Easter Robin

On Good Friday, a plain brown robin flying over Jerusalem was curious about the “nest” atop Jesus’ head.  When the bird realized it was a crown of thorns, he tried to dislodge it.  As the robin pulled out a long thorn from Jesus’ forehead, a drop of blood landed on the bird’s breast, staining it red.  Now the robin’s red breast is a symbol of Jesus’ loving sacrifice, and the robin’s early spring song is a reminder of Jesus’ joyful resurrection.
