Reflections: Easter Sunday

Reflections for Easter Sunday of the Lord's Resurrection

God raised Jesus from the dead. We have this mentioned six times in the Gospels. The pagan historian Josephus also made a mention of this unique event of Jesus' resurrection. Mary Magdela, the apostles, the disciples and many others saw Him after His resurrection.

Risen Christ is the Saviour of the world. There are many religions in this world. With the only exception Christ, no founder of other world religions has said, when alive, "within three days after death I will rise again". Christ alone said it and He kept up His assurance. St Paul says, "If Christ has not risen from dead, nobody would have believed in Him and there would have been no Christianity today. The resurrection of Jesus is the greatest and most important event in the history of the world. The resurrection of Christ is a victory of the spirit over flesh. Christ's resurrection is life over death. It is truth over falsehood.
