Resurrection of the Lord/Easter Sunday (D)

Deuteronomy 7:1-26
Psalm 75 OR 76
John 5:19-30
2Corinthians 1:1-17 (18-22)

Just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life,
so the Son gives life to whomever he wishes.
        Let all honor be given to the risen Son of God,
        to God the Father, and to God the Holy Spirit.
Jesus says, “Very truly, I tell you, anyone who hears my word
and believes him who sent me has eternal life.”
        The hour is coming - and this is the hour!  -
        when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God.
“Those who hear will live; whoever believes does not
come under judgment, but has passed from death to life.”
        Those in their graves will hear his voice and be raised —
        those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, 
        and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.
