Die Auferstehung is the German word for the Resurrection – the event in the New Testament that is celebrated at Easter.
The term refers to the resurrection of Jesus three days after he was crucified and is the central theme in the Christian faith.
Indeed, it is quoted in the Glaubensbekenntnis (statement of faith) in Catholic Church services.
One of the relevant passages in the New Testament is Matthew 28:1-10, but the resurrection leads on to other events to be found in the Acts of the Apostles, such as appearing to two travellers on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-35).
It is a complex topic, which the podcast can only introduce at this stage. More detailed information can be found in Wikipedia: English | German.
