U know.... there was already a Happy Easter thread? I guess you wanted your own to make sure we know he has risen?

Thanks Father!

Can you explain (or someone with good knowledge of the English language) why it's "He is Risen" vs. "He has Risen"? Back when it was written, was "has" not the accepted verb tense or something?

Because "risen" is on ongoing state of not being dead. You can say "he has risen" to describe the rising from the dead, and "he is risen" to describe the current state. Just like you can say "the yeast is risen" -- which also makes more factual sense.

When used with "is," risen is an adjective. When used with "has," risen is a verb.

It all depends a great deal on whether the originals were written in Greek, Aramaic or Hebrew, then on how and when they were translated, not to mention which English version of the Bible the good father uses.

Wouldn't that be Christmas?

Edit : and it's not a zombie myth. He wasn't "undead".

Have you seen that other Easter thread? Nice Easter eggs but that's not what this day is about nor zombies. It's about Jesus' victory over sin and death and through Him our ability to share in this greatest hope of all humanity. God bless!

Perhaps you are back talking about that other Easter thread now. Or is that the thread for the greatest hope of about half of humanity?

No, the most important holiday in the Catholic calendar is unquestionably Easter.

And how is he not "undead"? What else would you call it?
