Christ has impacted this world in many ways, but none more forcibly or more definitively than in His resurrection. The ancient world was utterly struck by the sheer power and beauty, irony and clarity, simplicity and depth of this event. Nothing in the whole realm of reality remains untouched by it. Nothing in all of religion, philosophy, or science can contend with it. Radiating from this epic event of one man, in one place, at one particular point in time streams the light of immortality and the warmth of an invigorating hope. The gospel of Christ’s death and resurrection reorients life. For those who have tasted its power, reality is recentered—an emphasis most needed in every age.
