Q. What does the resurrection of Christ profit us?
A First, by His resurrection He has overcome death, that He might make us partakers of the righteousness which He has obtained for us by His death; second, we also are raised up by His power to a new life; and, third, the resurrection of Christ is to us a sure pledge of our blessed resurrection.
-- The Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day Seventeen, 1563
