Easter celebrates Jesus supernatural resurrection from the dead, which is one of the chief tenets of the Christian faith.
The resurrection established Jesus as the Son of God and is cited as proof that God will righteously judge the world.
Paul writes that, for those who trust in Jesus's death and resurrection, "death is swallowed up in victory."
The First Epistle of Peter declares that God has given believers "a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead".
Christian theology holds that, through faith in the working of God, those who follow Jesus are spiritually resurrected with him so that they may walk in a new way of life and receive eternal salvation, and can hope to be physically resurrected to dwell with him in the Kingdom of Heaven.
