Alleluia! When Christ Arose
Uploaded on Feb 19, 2019
The Heidelberg Catechism, a Reformation teaching document, among other, explains the Biblical meaning of the Apostles' Creed. This song is based on Lord's Day 17, the question and answer that elaborates Article 5 of the Creed, "On the third day the third day he arose from the dead." The pertinent question and answer of the catechism is:
Q. How does Christ's resurrection benefit us?
A. First, by his resurrection he has overcome death, so that he could make us share in the righteousness which he had obtained for us by his death. 1
Second, by his power we too are raised up to a new life. 2
Third, Christ's resurrection is to us a sure pledge of our glorious resurrection. 3
