Easter's Unspoken Purpose
The Kingdom of Heaven and its righeousness does not come with careful observation, but arises as a yeast within believers.
At that first Easter the Kingdom of Heaven established its perfectly selfless rule; it was so nailed for this world to still see.
The purpose of Jesus' passion is that a man may place the betterment of another above the interest of self. For such was, is and always will be the rule of Jesus. This is righteousness.
His spilt blood was so His life and His followers' lives would spell 'righteousness'. ~ Michael Cartwright
I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. (Isaiah 61:10)
