Truly, HE is Risen!
“Christ is Risen!”, “Truly, He is Risen!” is the salutation with which Orthodox Christians greet one another following the Feast of the Resurrection. Why does the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ bring such joy, and what are the implications of His Resurrection? Why was it necessary and inevitable that the Lord rise from the dead, and what was the effect of His Resurrection on the disciples, on the Church and on the world?
In this booklet, His Holiness Pope Shenouda III (1923-2012), 117th Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of Saint Mark, answers these questions and many others relating to the Resurrection of our Lord, God and Saviour Jesus Christ.
