Easter and the resurrection

Three statements about the resurrection:

Easter is the New Year’s Day of the soul. [A. B. Simpson]

The gospel…doesn’t explain Easter.  Easter explains the gospel.  Christ was God.  The miracle wasn’t that Christ rose from the dead.  It would have been even more unthinkable for the God/Man who was born as he was, and lived as he did, and died as he did, not to rise from the dead! [Ray Stedman]

After Calvary, God has the right to be trusted, to be believed that He means what He says, and that His love is dependable. [A. J. Gossip]
