Ok, it's not Easter… But I don't want to wait that long before I can post this video.
I don't know whether Jesus died and rose. In spiritual matters, I think the interpretation of a statement is more important than the actual fact. If the story of the resurrection give us hope and assurance that even death can be overcome, not just by Jesus, but by anyone, then the story serves it's purpose. The overcoming of death is the overcoming of the most rigid limitation we have placed upon ourselves in our belief system.
