“If Jesus rose from the dead, then you have to accept all that he said; if he didn't rise from the dead, then why worry about any of what he said? The issue on which everything hangs is not whether or not you like his teaching but whether or not he rose from the dead.”
“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die."
-- Jesus Christ, John 11:25-26 KJV
"The message of Easter is that God's new world has been unveiled in Jesus Christ and that you're now invited to belong to it.”

"We have not been called just to live a crucified life in Christ, but a resurrected life!"

God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, 'I love you.'
-- Billy Graham
