Easter also called Pascha or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD.
3 Powerful Truths about the Resurrection:
1. The resurrection reveals Jesus as the final authority in this world.
When Jesus appeared to his followers immediately after his resurrection, the first words out of his mouth were “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth” (Matthew 28:18).
2. The resurrection compels us to tell the world about Jesus.
The second thing Jesus told his disciples is that they should tell the whole world about his crucifixion and resurrection, and invite them to follow him, too (Matthew 28:19-20a).
3. The resurrection reminds us that world history will end on a joyful note. (Matthew 28:20b)
The third and final thing Jesus told his followers is “I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20b).
