Papal Easter Message 2014
His Holiness Pope Tawadros II
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, One God. Amen.
Ekhristos Anisti, Alithos Anisti. Christ is Risen, Indeed He is Risen
I congratulate you my beloved with the Glorious Resurrection Feast that is the crown of our feasts and joy. Christ’s Resurrection is the main foundation in our Christianity, our Church, our evangelism and our daily life. Christ’s Resurrection is considered everything to us. The Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ is considered our new life that we can live in.
In Christ’s Resurrection, we have three main aspects.
(1) Before Crucifixion and Resurrection, Our Lord Jesus Christ was a teacher and a shepherd
(2) During Crucifixion until Resurrection, He was a reconciliator and a liberator
(3) After Resurrection, our Lord Jesus Christ was present and became a companion to every man. How?
Before Crucifixion and Resurrection, our Lord Jesus Christ was a teacher. He taught the multitude and individuals. He used all available means at that time. He gave sermons, interviews, and meetings. He performed miracles and gave many various and different parables. In His service, He met all people from all levels; He met people from upper classes in society and others from lower classes in the community. He met great multitudes and individuals, in different dialogues. He met Zacchaeus at the tree and the Samaritan woman at the well. At night, He met with Nicodemos. Teaching was the starting point as well as to influence change. before Crucifixion, our Lord Jesus Christ was a teacher and a shepherd.
