So if the resurrection actually happened, What does it mean?
It means that the renewing power of God’s love has proved itself to be greater than the destructive power of evil and death. Death is not final.
The earliest Christian confession of faith was ‘Jesus is Lord’ – Lord of the new creation, triumphing over the world of sin and death.
This is the powerful hope at the heart of Christianity – the triumph of God’s love over evil, sin and death through Jesus.
