The Crucifixion and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ are, both for the faithful and the unbeliever, the boundary between the ancient (BC) and the modern days (AD). Both morally and naturally as well as spiritually, the teaching of Jesus Christ and faith in Him transformed and rebuilt the world. The struggle was long and arduous, but from the moment Christ died and was resurrected, the death knell sounded against all satanic tyranny and all unbearable abomination. From that time on, holiness and justice have become the universal ideal of all those who call the name of Jesus Christ as their Lord, and the attainment of that ideal has become the common heritage of the souls in which His holy Spirit remains.
The results of the ministry of Jesus Christ for the rebirth and reformation of the decayed, from the passions and sin, society and human life are historical and indisputable.
He eliminated brutality and vindictiveness.
He tainted the unbridled flawed passions of the human soul.
He stigmatised despair, distress and suicide.
He severely punished child murder.
He annihilated the shameful impurities of hedonism and carnality.
He freed the beast-fighter.
He released the slave.
He protected the captive.
He hospitalized the patient.
He sheltered the stranger.
He protected the orphan and all the weak.
He raised the woman.
He surrounded the innocent age of the child with wreaths of rays.
He refined work, transforming it from a vulgarity to dignity and a duty.
He sanctified family and the marriage, elevating it from trade and slavery to a blessed union of the man and the woman.
He made love a universal and obligatory virtue and a characteristic of His disciples.
He purified life from every contamination of the flesh and the spirit.
He praised the soul of every human being as an invaluable creation of God.
He built pure hearts, peaceful lives and sweet homes.
According to the ancient Roman philosopher, Seneca (4 BC – 65 BC), (contemporary Jesus Christ), compassion is considered a defect and poverty the greatest disgrace. According to Jesus Christ, almsgiving is a virtue and honest poverty is not dishonesty; however, willingly contemning wealth is virtue and praise.
There was no social class that he did not correct the evils.
For the believer, the consequences of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ are deeper and more profound than their historical significance, as they reveal the explanation of the mystery of life and confirm the conquest of the mystery of the tomb.
The believer, while seeing the sacrament of the Incarnation of the Son of God, no longer feels that God is far away, but loudly cries out with faith and hope and love.
