II. Easter Reflections
The First Empty Tomb
Jesus is the only person who has an empty tomb. Everyone else who's died has
returned to the dust, but Christ is alive and seated at the Father's right
hand. Because He overcame death, His followers are also guaranteed empty
tombs someday. ...
A Tale of Two Men - An Easter Story
The resurrection is God's stamp of approval on his Son. That's why Peter says in
Acts 2:24, "God raised him from the dead." He says it again in verse 32, "God
has raised this Jesus to life." It didn't just happen by chance that Jesus rose
from the dead. God raised his own Son on the third day. ...
The Impact of the Empty Tomb
Of all the religions of the world, only Christianity claims an empty tomb
for its founder. The physical resurrection of Jesus is the cornerstone of
Christianity. British theologian Michael Green said it well when he noted,
"Without faith in the resurrection there would be no Christianity at all."

was the first to behold something the world had never seen before - a
resurrected, transformed life. ...
The Resurrection And The Eucharist
There is an important connection between the Resurrection and the Eucharist. The
Eucharist IS the Risen Jesus. Therefore, the Eucharist makes the Resurrection present and active in our lives

one of us is called into again and again and again.
And none of us are left out of this. God wants to reveal his resurrection power
to each one of us...
With the resurrection of Jesus, light itself is created anew. He draws all
of us after him into the new light of the resurrection and he conquers all
darkness. He is God's new day, new for all of us. ...
