Happy Easter from Senator McWaters

Sat, 2011-04-23 20:00 -- ajohnston

The message of Easter is the message of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, as foreshadowed in the Jewish tradition of Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread. Christians around the world celebrate the words that were heard, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen." Christians celebrate the day as the one when Jesus was resurrected from the grave after crucifixion.
