  1. Resurrection

    Resurrection is the concept of a living being coming back to life after death. It is a religious concept, where it is used in two distinct respects: a belief in the resurrection of individual souls that is current and ongoing, or else a belief in a singular "Resurrection of the Dead" event at the end of the world. Most eschatologies believe in a universal resurrection, wherein all people from all history are resurrected. The Resurrection of the Dead is a standard eschatological belief in the Abrahamic religions. In a number of ancient religions, a life-death-rebirth deity is a deity which dies and resurrects. The death and resurrection of Jesus is the central focus of Christianity. The soul is believed by some to be the divine and immortal part of the human being, and some believe it is the actual vehicle by which people are resurrected. However, theological debate ensues with regard to what kind of resurrection is factual – either a spiritual resurrection with a spirit body, or a material resurrection with a restored human body. While most Christians believe Jesus' resurrection was in a material body, a very small minority believe it was spiritual.

  4. Vice President Rosario Murillo:

    Everything is calm, families celebrating in union at home and the places they visit this Sunday of resurrection, enjoying our traditions, our traditional gastronomy, the hug of our commander Daniel to each home, to each family. Let's go forward because we are a nation of hope, of faith.

  5. Roma Downey:

    We approached the casting of the role cautiously, wanting to find an actor who could portray the right amount of compassion and humanity, juan Pablo Di Pace really is amazing. He brings such heart and soul to the series, and, I think, his relationship with the disciples is very evident -- first expressed through their heartache at the loss of him and then expressed through their elation at his resurrection and return to them.
