Heidelberg Catechism Lord's Day 17

~His Resurrection

Lord’s Day 17

45. What benefit do we receive from the
“resurrection” of Christ?

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.[1]
Second, by His power we are also now raised up to a
new life.[2] Third, the resurrection of Christ is to us a
sure pledge of our blessed resurrection.[3]
