Christianity is all about Easter--and risen Christ

March 2013
United Methodist Reporter;3/29/2013, Vol. 159 Issue 48, p7A
The author offers his views on the theories of the atonement regarding the full meaning of Christ cross and the significance of Easter, a Christian festival celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He discusses a Lutheran pastor Paul Scherer's wisdom regarding Jesus' resurrection and suggests that the resurrection of Jesus on Easter is not just to convince doubters that he was raised but to understand that hope and faith comes with resurrection.
