Heidelberg Catechism – Lord’s Day 17
Question 45. What benefit do we receive from the Resurrection of Christ?
First, by His resurrection He has overcome death, that He might make us partakers of the righteousness which by His death He has obtained for us. Secondly, we also are now by His power raised up to a new life. Thirdly, the resurrection of Christ is to us a sure pledge of our blessed resurrection.
