Victory Over Death
John 20:1-10; 1 Peter 1:3-5, 8-9 NRSV
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 1 Peter 1:3
Christ is risen! You are risen — risen from the tomb of hopelessness and despair. Hallelujah!
