On this day, Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead after 3 days in the grave (Holy Friday, Holy Saturday, and Pascha Sunday). The resurrection is recorded in the Christian Scriptures in Matthew chapter 28, Mark chapter 16, Luke chapter 24, John chapter 20, and is recognized throughout the Epistles – letters written mostly by St. Paul (it is described theologically in particular in 1 Corinthians chapter 15). To Christians, it is important because it fulfilled prophecies and is the foundation of Christian belief, life, and practice. It is the most important Feast Day for Orthodox Christians.
