What does Jesus mean to you?

If Easter indicates anything, it is that truth and love are eternal.

But Jesus' resurrection isn't just something radically new in terms of human consciousness; it's also something that's radically new in terms of atoms and molecules.

Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world at this time so lift the cross high because its shame has become the door to the salvation of all.

"Christians believe that in Jesus Christ this journey to peace has already been won yet still not fully realised in our world". Holy Week in the Coptic Orthodox tradition focuses primarily on the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus.

Archbishop Prowse urged reaching out to those who are struggling.

"Slow down, unload, let go", he said.

For individuals they said this meant being unselfish, not rushing to judge others, speaking up for justice and sacrifice. In resurrecting Jesus from the grave, God reminds us of His absolute sovereignty over life and death. The speech against the Holy Spirit which is unforgiveable is the proclamation one makes for oneself of oneself for eternity, the self-definition that they make, which in that declaration, is made to hold oneself up against the Holy Spirit, not for a particular time, but for eternity.

"Such are the seeds of a revolution at both a personal and community level and a revolution this country needs".

"But it's lovely to help others, to serve others", he said, noting that this can get tiring at times, "but life is like that..."

When we celebrate Easter, we express the confident assurance that the risen Christ indwells us even as we live in Christ. "Are you up for it?" Easter is celebrated 3 days later when, according to mythology, Jesus Christ rose from the dead. Technically speaking, though, the Lenten season should last for 46 days if only all the Sundays after Ash Wednesday until Palm Sunday are not excluded from the count as they are considered "mini-Easter Sundays", which celebrate the victory of Christ over death.

"Easter speaks throughout the ages to the condition of human despair". To that end, the living Lord Jesus puts within us a desire to tell the Good News like the women on that first Easter morning. Others could tune into their TV sets and watch shows and movies based on the life of Jesus Christ.

Now for the answer to the question "why was I born?"

"We forget what it's really about and the same can be said about Christmas". "Every long tired mile I'll recount with a smile, when I come to the end of the road".

On the charge of blasphemy for revealing himself as the Son of God, and as God himself, he was sentenced to die a brutal death by crucifixion. The One who was crucified and then laid in a borrowed tomb was not only the creator and giver of life, but is life itself.
