First Presidency Easter Message

      Of all the victories in human history, none is so great, none so universal in its effect, none so everlasting in its consequences as the victory of the crucified Lord, who came forth in the resurrection that first East morning.
      The empty tomb of that first Easter brought the most comforting assurance that can come into man's heart. This was the affirmative answer to the ageless question raised by Job, "If a man die, shall he live again?" (Job 14:14).
      ". . . (but) those that die in me shall not taste of death, for it shall be sweet unto them" (Doctrine and Covenants 42:45-46).
      This is the promise of the risen Lord. This is the relevance of Jesus to a world in which all must die. As He is the conqueror of death, so also is He the Master of life.
      We solemnly witness of the reality of our Lord's life, death, and resurrection, and of the universal victory over the grave that will come to all mankind because of His mercy and grace.
