It is our hope that as families work together to learn the fifty-two questions and answers found in this catechism, they will increase not only in knowledge, but in the fruit of the Spirit, as they grow to love God with all of their hearts.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

[13] But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. [14] For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep.

Question 17
What does Christ’s resurrection mean for us?

Answer
Christ triumphed over sin and death by being physically resurrected, so that all who trust in him are raised to new life in this world and to everlasting life in the world to come.

This week’s question helps:
A great devotional about the resurrection of Jesus
Go a little deeper: An article on the power and promise of the resurrection of Jesus.
