Jesus is alive and well! We so often view him nailed to the cross. But truly we should visualize him resurrected. He triumphed over sin, death, and the weigh of this world (tyranny). This life is not the end. Its the beginning.
Icon of the Resurrection, with Christ, having kicked down the gates of Hades and pulling Adam and Eve out of the tombs. Christ is flanked by saints, and Satan, depicted as an old man, is bound and chained.
