‘I am the resurrection and the life’

by Archbishop Cranmer:

No matter how many times this day comes and goes; no matter how many years of how many decades and centuries Easter Sunday passes with a myriad of sorrows or joys, there is only one thing to say, and only one thing worth saying:

He is risen! Hallelujah!

Nothing else is worth saying, because it just doesn’t compare to this wondrous message of salvation. Nothing else is worth writing, because it simply crowds the critical comprehension of these words. And nothing else is worth hearing, because there is no more important a sound in the universe than the declaratory truth that we have passed from death to life.

For the believing community, eternal life is now; the kingdom is here. ‘I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.’

He is risen!

And so we have eternal life. Is there really any more to say? Is there really any kind of new spiritual insight or profound theological truth that hasn’t already been said? Jesus is more powerful than death: death can no longer separate us from the love of God.

Sorry, but isn’t that amazing?
