He is risen! He is risen indeed!
We don’t just say “He has risen” or “He was risen” – because He still IS risen to this day. That is part of who He still is – risen and victorious over death.
The resurrection shows that everything Jesus taught was validated and vindicated by God – Jesus is God, and the King of the earth, and the only true hope for human beings to overcome death. Jesus is the way to know peace. All of this is Easter!
Today we get to celebrate Jesus, and all He has done. He is risen indeed!
