Christ Resurrection Celebration Sunday April 4 2010 EASTER

Sri Swami Vishwananda: He has resurrected. He is resurrecting inside everybody. He is going to resurrect everybody with Him and let the old person which is inside of you die to let the new one resurrect together with Him. The actual resurrection of Christ is to show that resurrection is possible, to show that God-realization or your true realization is possible. He has shown it. He has shown the way. That is why He has said: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Light”.

Resurrected Christ: Many Christians regard the resurrection of Jesus as the foundation of the mission of Christ. Jesus showed, “I am the way, the truth and the life (light). Through his teachings and resurrection of his rising from physical death into Divine Light, Christ exemplified “the way” that we all may resurrect into Divine Light.

The Resurrection of Christ provided validation of his Incarnation. The Apostle Paul wrote in his first letter to the Corinthians: 'If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men. But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.' (Corinthians 15:19-20)

According to Paul, the entire Christian faith is based on the resurrection of Jesus on the third day, and the belief of life after mankind’s death. Christians annually celebrate the resurrection of Jesus at Easter.

The vast majority of Christians; Catholics, Orthodox, Protestants and adherents of the Assyrian Church of the East accept the resurrection of Jesus as a real historical event. -Utpalavati
