    Resurrection Rolls
    1 (8 count) can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
    8 regular marshmallows
    3 tablespoons butter, melted in shallow baking dish
    1 cup cinnamon sugar, in small bowl
     1. Roll out the crescent rolls and separate on to 
        a powdered sugar jelly roll sheet.
     2. Show the marshmallows and explain that the color 
        white represents purity in God's eyes of those whose
        sins have been cleansed by Jesus. 
        Read: Isaiah 1:18 and John 3:1-3.
     3. Dip marshmallows individually in the butter, then 
        roll in the cinnamon and sugar mixture, coating evenly. 
     4. Place one butter and cinnamon sugar coated marshmallow 
        in each crescent roll. 
     5. Pull up the narrow ends of the triangles and wrap the 
        crescent roll dough completely around the marshmallow, 
        sealing well. It is very important that no gaps are 
     6. Explain that each marshmallow represents Jesus' body 
        which was wrapped (covered in sugar mixture) and placed 
        in the tomb which was then sealed tight (closed up in 
        the dough.) 
        Read: Matthew 27:57-60.
     7. Use remaining butter to brush the tops of the "tombs" 
        and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar to taste.
     8. Bake on cookie sheet at 375F for 14 minutes, or until 
        the tops are a deep golden brown. 
     9. Cool 1 minute in the pan. 
    10. When the "tombs" are ready to be served have each person 
        break theirs open and experience the emptiness of the tomb. 
        Explain that Jesus was raised from the dead and His 
        followers were amazed to find the tomb empty. 
        Read: Matthew 28:1-9.
