First Presidency Easter Greeting

As we approach this Easter season, it is a priceless blessing to know that Jesus Christ lives, that He is the Redeemer and Savior of all mankind and the Son of God. We declare to all that Jesus Christ is “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6).

The first Easter, the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, is the greatest and most significant miracle of all time.

We testify that the Resurrection was literal and real. Our Savior brought to every person who will ever live on this earth the privilege of once again having a body, of living again. Even though it has been nearly two thousand years since the Savior lived on the earth, His teachings still apply today. He gave us a practical guide for living in peace.

We urge all people to search the Savior’s life for truths that will guide and give meaning to their lives. He died that we might live. We worship Him and invite all to do likewise.
