Spring is like a deep sigh. After the cold darkness of winter months, it feels as if we can breathe again. We hear the birds singing and watch the trees bud and flowers emerge to the growing warmth. Color fills the landscape - a welcome sight after the gray of winter. In the middle of the season comes the pinnacle of the Christian year as we celebrate Jesus' resurrection. We sing the joyous refrain "He is risen!" and shout in reply "He is risen indeed!". The living Christ is more than a historical reality; He is a personal vitality. This study involves the final chapters of Matthew's Gospel. They include accounts of Jesus' marvelous teaching, His miraculous works, and the moving story of His resurrection. He has given us a message to proclaim to the world: "He is risen!".
