The Victory over Death

A Way of Life, President Gordon B. Hinckley

“Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.” — John 11:25

“The miracle of that resurrection morning, that first Easter Sunday, is a miracle for all mankind. It is the miracle of the power of God, whose Beloved Son gave His life to atone for the sins of all, a sacrifice of love for every son and daughter of God. In so doing He broke the seals of death.”

. . .

“We rejoice, therefore, as do many, and as should all mankind, when we remember the most glorious, the most comforting, the most reassuring of all events of human history — the victory over death.”

Excerpt from President Gordon B. Hinckley’s April 1997 First Presidency Message, The Victory over Death. President Gordon B. Hinckley was President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. View President Gordon B. Hinckley’s full address here.
