‘Because of Jesus, you can rise above anything’: Watch the Church’s new Easter video for 2023

The first two spoken phrases in the video come from 1 Corinthians 15:55: O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

The video then goes on to address addiction, self-doubt, sin, and despair, paired with images of mourning at a funeral, an addiction recovery group meeting, a father and son reuniting at a train station, a man sitting alone on a church pew, and a young woman coming up out of the waters of baptism. The video concludes with a triumphant musical crescendo and a visual depiction of the empty tomb in Jerusalem.

YouTube user Hollish commented, “I am thankful for the atonement and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Because of Him, I have been able to overcome temptations and trials. He has made my weaknesses into strengths. He has given me comfort that death is not the end, and that like Job, ‘in my flesh, I shall see God.‘”

And Ramona F. wrote, “This was so moving, thank you for creating such uplifting content that gives such powerful reminders of how Christ can help me.”
