On Good Friday we saw how Jesus’ death in the past secures our future, but here we see how the resurrection secures our future. Since Jesus died and is risen, we who are on with him will die and rise again. This hope for the future is certain and enables us to rejoice in the present.


1 Peter 1:3-6

Did Jesus Really Rise from the Dead?
