"He Is Risen"

“Christ Is Risen” and the response, “He is Risen Indeed!” is a common verbal exchange among Christians during the Easter season. This transaction is known as the “Paschal Greeting” or the “Easter Acclamation” The roots of this saying can be found in Matthew 28:6 when an angel informed Mary Magdelane and Mary (the mother of James and Joseph) that Jesus was not in the tomb. “He is not here, for he has risen…”
