The message of Easter is simple and clear: Life is stronger than death. Death has lost its sting and that we are all bound for glory. "But these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them." (Luke 24:11)
Christians believed that the resurrection of Jesus happened in a time and place in History. It is the core of each and every teaching of Christianity. Either we believe it or not, Jesus is risen! Death is a great mystery. If we believe it, then we can trust that every death will lead to a new life. It is in Easter mystery that we are reminded time and time again that the two things over which we have no power- sin and death- are not invincible powers. Jesus has broken the bonds of sin and disperse the darkness of death. It is in the beauty of Easter that we are reassured that life conquers death.
