The Grave with Christ is No Grave

"With you, Lord, I will flee,
that I may gain in you Life in every place.
The prison with you is no prison,
for in you man goes up into Heaven:
the grave with you is no grave,
for you are the Resurrection."

-- St. Ephraim the Syrian

The Resurrection of Christ is the most significant event in the history of mankind.

Christ's Grave became empty the third day after He was crucified.

Just as Christ trampled down death by death, He will also trample down death for all Christians, thus allowing them to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

And that, dear friend, is the Good News in a nutshell. Thanks!
