"Easter Sunday" in the Bible: Matthew 28:1-20
The day of the resurrection was an astonishing one. The mystery of Jesus' teaching revealed themselves in a many splendored even we now call Easter. Easter Sunday saw the tomb empty, the disciples joyful and our Lord raised.
"He is risen" in the Bible: Matthew 28:6
On Easter morning two thousand years ago, an angel said the words that would change all of history: "He is not here; he has risen, just as he said." Those words form the basis for Easter and are the central hope of Christianity. Now that Christ has risen from the tomb, we can be restored to a relationship with God.
