Mercy and truth have met together;
righteousness and peace have kissed.
A just God and a Savior.
The Lord is well pleased for His righteousness’ sake; He will exalt the law and make it honorable.
God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them. § God set [Him] forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. § He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. § Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. § To him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness.

How are the dead raised up? And with what body do they come?
Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. § As we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.
The Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, . . . will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.
Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, “Peace to you.” But they were terrified and frightened, and supposed they had seen a spirit. § He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once.
If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
