Easter quotes

I’ll be back later this evening with Psalm Sunday, but for now I wanted to put up the first of a series of quotes about Easter (or Resurrection Day, if you prefer). For past holidays I have put a series of quotes all in one post, but some of these are really meaty, and I think they’d lose their effectiveness all together. So I am going to post one or two a day throughout this week.

As I collected these through the years, I did note the author, but not where I found the quote — one of the changes experienced in becoming a blogger is keeping track of sources to link to. šŸ™‚ But since I don’t have the source for these (except for this first one), I will just post them as I have them in my files.

“Easter is not primarily a comfort, but a challenge. If it is true [as he and others indeed demonstrate], then it is the supreme fact of history, and to fail to adjust one’s life to its implications means irreparable loss.”
ā€” J.N.D. Anderson, late Dean of the School of Law at the University of London, The Evidence for the Resurrection (Downer’s Grove, Illinois: InterVarsity Press, 1966), p. 4. (I haven’t read this book — all I know about it is this quote.)

On this side of the resurrection the cross is no less vulgar–the vulgarity of the cross is the vulgarity of the sin that erected it–but the cross flames with light, the light of the glory of the grace of God, Who took sin into His own heart and canceled it by the shedding of blood. ā€”G. Campbell Morgan
