THE RESURRECTION PROCLAMATION

For over 40 years, Christian faculty at UCSB have been meeting regularly for discussion and prayer. For over 20 years they published an annual full-page proclamation in the Daily Nexus simply declaring "He Is Risen!"

The original proclamation had 13 signers and grew to over sixty within several years representing faculty from Anthropology, Art History, Biology-MCDB, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Classics, Communication, Creative Studies, Earth Science, East Asian Studies, Economics, Education, Electrical & Computer Engineering, English, French & Italian, Global & International Studies, History, Linguistics, Materials, Mathematics, Mechanical & Environment Engineering, Music, Paleontology, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science and more.

There was (and still is) a very special unity in their diversity.

 


 

A CROSS, AN EMPTY TOMB, AND THE RESURRECTION

Our ransom was paid in full on the cross. Death was defeated so that we might live.

"When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory."

"Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?"

(1 Corinthians 15: 54-55)
