Death becomes life in Orthodox Easter
Christianity is a religion that transforms. Blindness becomes sight; mourning is turned into joy; a self-centered tax collector becomes a generous man; a devout Jew once participating in the murder of Christians becomes their spokesman, writing a significant portion of the New Testament.
