Resurrection & Funerals

It proved to many people that Jesus was the son of God and it made the apostles believe again. It also brought the Jews into belief again and it gave the early church a huge boost around the world of Christ. I believe Christians today this means a sign of greatness that had prevailed through back into the light. It is also a sign of hope that whatever happens things will always turn around. We will live long.
