And if Christ had not risen from the dead or have broken the bands of death that the grave should have no victory, and that death should have no sting, there could have been no resurrection.
But there is a resurrection, therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of death is swallowed up in Christ.He is the light and the life of the world; yea, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more death. - Mosiah 16:7-9
"At this Easter season, I feel strongly the importance of my commission to testify of the reality of the Savior's resurrection," said Elder Howard W. Hunter of the Council of the Twelve during the April 1983 general conference. "My brothers and sisters, there is a God in the heavens who loves and cares about you and me. We have a Father in Heaven, who sent His Firstborn of spirit children, His Only Begotten in the flesh, to be an earthly example for us, to take upon Himself the sins of the world, and subsequently to be crucified for the sins of the world and be resurrected.
"It is truly a beautiful message - there will be life after death."
