Jesus Christ rose from the dead on the first Easter. Wow! But the Bible does not say that Jesus was resuscitated and therefore brought back to life. Jesus’ new life is different from that of Lazarus, whom Jesus raised from the dead, so that Lazarus could go on living with his sisters, Martha and Mary, as before his death, in Bethany. Lazarus would have to die again some day.
What is this business of Jesus being raised from the dead? Jesus apparently had the same body as before, because the disciples recognized Him when He appeared to them. After the Resurrection, Jesus was definitely alive; He even ate some breakfast with His own. He did not seem to be confined within space. He could go through walls when He wanted to be with someone.
Death no longer has dominion in this world. Am I ever glad about that! It sure is a mystery as to what exactly lies beyond our dying. What I do know is that Jesus, the Son of God -- this wonderful, loving Savior -- will be there to receive me. Alleluia!!
