When Christ left the grave

369_empty_tomb

When Christ left the grave, it was not merely an announcement that there is a hereafter and a life beyond, it was the shattering of history by a creative act of God Almighty. In this cosmic event God was doing something comparable only with what He had done at the first creation.

This was the beginning
of a new era for the universe,
the decisive turning-point
for the human race.

In the Resurrection the new age had arrived, and this stupendous miracle signified the storming of history and the transforming of the world.
