The Resurrection of Jesus –
According to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John
The phenomenon of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ lies at the heart of the faith and conviction of every Christian. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: Although the Resurrection was an historical event that could be verified by the sign of the empty tomb and by the reality of the apostles’ encounters with the risen Christ, still it remains at the very heart of the mystery of the faith as something that transcends and surpasses history. This is why the risen Christ does not reveal himself to the world, but rather to his disciples. Just as four eyewitnesses in a modern event all relay their subjective take on the objective event that they witnessed, so do each of the four evangelist in their individual gospel accounts about the resurrection of Jesus. In this series of videos, Father Michael Champagne, priest for the diocese of Lafayette, analyzes, explains, and relays the biblical, theological, and historical accounts of the four evangelists who were the first to receive and hand on the good news about Jesus Christ victory over death for all eternity.
