صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: من فن عصر النهضة: صورة قيامة المسيح من القبر.

An old lady said to one of the believers, Im not expecting death.

The believer asked, Do you mean that God has taken the fear of death away from you?

She said, No, Im not going to die.

As she emphasized that, the believer thought that the lady had lost her mind, or that she suffered from emotional stress.

He asked her kindly, Why do you think that God is sparing you from death?

She said, Since Ive actually died, Im not going to die again.

As she noticed that he took her lightly, she said to him, It seems that you didnt understand me: Jesus has died and I died with him! Hes suffered and I suffer with him! Hes risen and Ive risen with him. Im the daughter of the resurrection. Death is behind me. Ill only sleep in the Lord Jesus Who is my Resurrection.
