The end. It's the last part of the story. It's the conclusion. It signifies that nothing else is going to happen, that nothing else is coming. It's final.
When Jesus died on the cross, it looked like the end. His family mourned him and his followers scattered in fear. It seemed like all that they believed in was a lie. How could Jesus be all that he said he was, all that they hoped he would be? He was gone.
Stories end… but this one didn’t. Jesus's death wasn't the end. God's story wasn't finished. The resurrection changed everything, allowing us to know the living Jesus and say, because he is risen, I am new.
