    “Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?

  • The Resurrection Of Jesus In Matthew Essay

    A key Matthean theme is emphasizing the Jewishness of Jesus, so when Matthew recounts the resurrection of Jesus, he starts off by stating that Mary Magdalene and the other Mary visited the tomb after the sabbath. From this we can infer that visiting the tomb and tending to the body might have been considered breaking the sabbath, so by including this detail Matthew portrays Jesus and his followers as people who do not turn away from the Jewish Law, but rather as people who embrace it.

    For Christians, Jesus’ resurrection has a bold impact on our lives. Each year as we celebrate Easter I once again am shocked to my core by how much God loves us. “Easter does not mean the death of death and the promise of an everlasting life with God. But in John it means much more than that, an intimate relationship with God and Jesus that begins right now” (Rollefson, Garriott, Carlson, Swanson & Klein, 2016). Jesus’ death and resurrection was the opening for our present relationship with Christ

This can clearly be seen in the counterrevolution that followed the removal of the King and the creation of the French Republic.

Characters such as Dr. Manette, Sydney Carton, and Darney were
