That's the basic definition.
"Peace be with you, you who are wounded by the way life has treated you and believe that there is no issue, no future, for you".
Meanwhile, politicians also shared messages celebrating Easter. Families gather for festive meals, often eating ham or lamb.
That's why I believe the message of Easter is as important as ever.
Church leaders must find new meaning to share each year, and a fresh perspective that both the young and old can connect to. Despite the strong historical evidence of these events, many dismiss, deny, or try to explain them away. For on Easter, everything changed.
"According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead".
"Easter proclaims that God's light shatters darkness", Hudak said.
Jesus always told the truth.
"'Alex, ' I exclaimed, 'would you like to see me die on a cross like Jesus did?' And for the vast majority of our contemporaries, the only way of seeing him alive is for us Christians to love one another". Jesus showed us flawless love. The empire relied on wealth and was built on might and fear. He was betrayed, arrested, and sentenced to death. The stone was removed and Jesus' body was gone from the tomb.
According to the Christian Scriptures, Jesus is the long-awaited Messiah who offered his life for the sins of the world as was prophesied in the Hebrew Scriptures.
"The belief that Jesus rose from the dead is as scandalous today as it was to those first disciples", Smith said.
"Through drama of the literary we allow people to place themselves 2,000 years ago and experience it today", he added.
"It is one thing seeing and hearing about it, it is another thing being a part of it", he said, noting that as the Roman soldiers were pretending to whip him, he realized how bad it would have been if they had actually done so, as they did to Jesus.
"Jesus came so that we could live as free men and women, loving and being loved as He originally intended. Lighthouses don't fire cannons to call attention to their shining - they just shine". No, the joy of Easter is even deeper than that. The connection between the Jewish Passover and the Christian feast of Easter is real and ideal. Death is no longer a prison, but a passage into God's presence.
This holiday celebrates a complete reorientation of the universe. "It is our surest hope in this hurt and hurting world that God loves so much". God's grace and mercy defeat sin.
