Easter quotes from the bible

A list of insightful Easter quotes from the Bible.
Easter is the most celebrated date in the Christian Calendar, and the Bible is full of quotes about the meaning of Jesus's resurrection. Notice the quotes from John in particular.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him. -- Perhaps the best and most meaningfull quote about easter from John 3:16-17

And he said to them, "Do not be amazed; you are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He has risen; He is not here; behold, here is the place where they laid Him. -- Quote from Mark 16:6

"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die."
-- John 11:25-26

"But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him."
-- This quote about easter can be found in Acts 2:24 NIV

"This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers."
-- 1 John 3:16 NIV

"This is the disciple who is bearing witness about these things, and who has written these things, and we know that his testimony is true. Now there are also many other things that Jesus did. Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written."
-- This quote is from John 21:24-25. The Bible according to John does not contain all the this that Jesus did.

"And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain. We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified about God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied. But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep." -- quote about easter and the resurrection from Corinthians 15:14-20

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time" -- Peter 1:3-5

There are many more easter quotes in the Bible, since after the resurrection, the twelve apostles moved on to the spread the word of Christ around the earth.
