He is the Resurrection and the Life...

 The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said,
 “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! 
 John 1:29

And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life.
They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.
Matthew 27:50-53

So they took the body of Jesus and bound it in linen cloths with the spices,
 as is the burial custom of the Jews. 
John 19:14

The tomb was sealed and at the demands of the chief priests and Pharisees,
 Pilate approved a guard of Roman soldiers.
(Matthew 27:62-66)

And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.  And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:  And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,  Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again... (Luke 24:1-7)

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.
Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live,
(John 11:25)

Thanks for sharing the recipe. We're going to be making some on Friday.

I haven't heard that Carmen song in so long! It is one that gives me goose bumps every time.
