And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him.”
This is the heart of the gospel, and the reason we celebrate Easter. To show that He had the ultimate authority over death, Jesus conquered it. He appeared to those who knew Him, and before He ascended into Heaven after forty days, He made His resurrection an undeniable truth; one that would change the world forever. Death was never the end, and it never will be again for those who are in Christ. The Messiah proved that it has no hold over those who belong to Him, and He invited you and I to join Him in everlasting life.
