The Rt Revd Paul Butler, Bishop of Durham, has recorded his Easter Message talking about the fresh hope that Easter brings.
He talks about the Easter story, Jesus’ own death on the cross on Good Friday and his resurrection on Easter Sunday saying: “This is the Easter story, and the Easter hope. Death need not hold us in fear because it has been overcome. Jesus, in dying, defeated death. This is why Easter is so important. This is where hope in the face of death truly lies.”
