Resurrection: A rising again. The revival of the dead.

Resurrection comes from the Latin prefix re (again) and the verb surgere (to rise).

“I am the resurrection, and the life.” – Jesus Christ, John 11: 25.

By the resurrection of Christ we have assurance of the future resurrection of men.

I find the Greek word for resurrection particularly interesting. Ἀνάστασις (anαstasis), has spawned numerous beautiful proper names: Anastasia, Anastacia, Nastasia, Stacey, Stasia, and Tasia.

Happy Resurrection Weekend!
