“The resurrection never becomes a fact of experience until the risen Lord lives in the heart of the believer.” (Peter Marshall).
“Jesus was not the only one to rise from the dead. Lazarus did. Dorcas did. But Jesus rose from the dead never to die again.” (Ezhamkulam Samkutty).
“Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf of springtime.” (Martin Luther).
“Easter is the New Year’s Day of the soul.” (A.B. Simpson).
“The lamb of the Passover finds its ultimate fulfilment in the Person of Jesus Christ.” (Franklin Graham).
“Jesus did not die on the Cross so we could have comfortable lives.” (Rick Warren).
“The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is the crowning proof of Christianity. If the resurrection did not take place, then Christianity is a false religion. If it did take place, then Christ is God and the Christian faith is absolute truth.” (Henry Morris).
“It is fitting that a supernatural person should enter and leave the earth in a supernatural way. This is in fact what the New Testament teaches and the Church believes. His birth was natural, but His conception was supernatural. His death was natural, but His resurrection was supernatural.” (John Stott).
