The Resurrection and Meaning

The esteemed Yale church historian Jaroslav Pelikan’s musing (as relayed shortly after his death by his friend Martin Marty) comes to mind. Professor Pelikan is reported to have confided, “If the Resurrection of Jesus actually happened, then nothing else really matters. If the Resurrection of Jesus did not actually happen, then nothing else really matters.”
