“In the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, we see God’s decisive victory not only over death but over all God’s other enemies as well. In that one climactic event, we see the certainty that someday, in the kingdom of God, there will be no more violence, war, jealousy, or death… These forces are still alive and at work in the world, but because of the victory that God won at Easter, their doom is certain. One day death will die.”

~ Stephen T. Davis, Risen Indeed
