Q. What does the resurrection of Jesus Christ signify?
A. No Christians think that Jesus passed away. If they believed that he passed away when he was crucified, how would they pray to him who does not exist anymore? Then, where is he if he didn’t pass away? How can we see and feel him? Even though he resurrected, what is the use of his resurrection if we cannot feel it in person? Actually, it is not an exaggeration to say that the resurrection of Jesus Christ, implying his eternity, is the core of Christianity.
The resurrection of Jesus means to realise that there is no birth and no death and that you are eternity itself by seeing everything as it is. When there is no birth and no death, Jesus’s death is not death. Put simply, to realise that Jesus’s death is not death is Jesus’s resurrection. When Jesus’s death is not death, your death is not death, either. In other words, Jesus’s resurrection is your resurrection since you can understand Jesus’s resurrection only when you realise that you are eternity itself.
In conclusion, there is no use in just believing in Jesus’s resurrection, even if he were to resurrect a hundred times, if you cannot get your own resurrection. To realise that you are eternity itself, by seeing everything as it is, is the true resurrection of Jesus.
