I think Resurrection Sunday is a Victorious Celebration!

IMO, The thing that Believers celebrate on Easter Sunday is not the crucifixion of Christ, but rather the resurrection of Christ. If Christ had only died we would be without hope. But in his resurrection is victory over sin and death.

Ephesians 1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come...

The Pharasees didn't kill Jesus. Jesus laid down his life for the sins of this world. All of my sin was bought and paid for by Jesus himself.

John 10:14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. 15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall beone fold, and one shepherd. 17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. 18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again.

Death has no Victory!!! And our Lord defeted it! That is cause for celebration! Wow!
