On Easter evening and again the following Sunday, because the disciples saw Jesus alive, they knew the Resurrection was real, and they believed in Him. They were then able to witness to their faith in spite of opposition and persecution from the Jewish council. Though grieved by various trials, it was the “living hope through the Resurrection of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:3) that enabled the Early Church to rejoice. The reality of the Resurrection becomes evident to people around us as we live out our faith, confessing Jesus as Lord and offering peace and forgiveness in His Name. As others come to faith, they join us and “have life in His Name.” (John 20:31)
