It's everything

I was thinking how the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, is everything. Without this event in history life has no meaning. For the casual observer there's nothing too remarkable about the death and burial part, but it's the resurrection that is extraordinary. It proves that Jesus was who he said he was, the Son of God. He was God incarnate.

"5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, everyone, to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all."
"12 Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong, because He poured out His soul unto, and He was numbered with the transgressors, and he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors." (Isaiah 53:5-6,12)

John 3:16
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
