Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6, ESV). Jesus is life eternal. He is the bread of life given for us to eat. (John 6:35).
He is risen!
“Speak, Mary, declaring
What you saw when wayfaring.”
“The tomb of Christ, who is living,
the glory of Jesus’ resurrection;
Bright angels attesting,
The shroud and napkin resting.
My Lord, my hope, is arisen;
To Galilee He goes before you.”
Christ indeed from death is risen,
Our new life obtaining.
Have mercy, victor King, ever reigning!
— “Christians, to the Paschal Victim,” LSB, 460.
He is risen, indeed!
