God is with us in Word and Sacrament

The Feast of the Resurrection of Our Lord (Sunrise)

The Feast of the Resurrection of Our Lord (Sunrise)

Old Test: Isaiah 25:6–9
Epistle: 1 Cor. 15:1–11
Gospel: John 20:1–18

“In Adam all die.” For we are all participants in the sin of Adam, who rebelled against God in the Garden and brought the curse of death into the world. But “in Christ all shall be made alive.” (1 Cor 15:1-26) Fo He was faithful to His Father and destroyed death on the holy tree. Jesus, the Second Adam, now walks in the Garden in the cool of the day and reveals Himself to the daughter of Eve. (Jn 20:1-18) The risen Christ brings not the curse of death but the blessing of life, the resurrection of the body. He leads us through the baptismal sea to new life on the other side, conquering our mortal enemies in its depths. (Ex 14:10Ñ15:1) In this way our Lord Jesus wipes away the tears from all faces. For He has swallowed up death forever. Let us therefore be glad and rejoice in His salvation! (Is 25:6-9)
