On the third day after his crucifixion, Christ rises from the dead and ascends to heaven.  His death atones for the sins of humanity and allows for the salvation of the righteous.


Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. (John 11.25-6)
