The Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ conferred upon Christianity its essential meaning. The Passion was to guide the faithful through their entire existence on earth. Even had they failed to apply its meaning consistently owing to sin and the distractions of life, at no time was it more crucial that they do so than as they approached their departure from this world. Similarly, the relatives, friends, neighbors, and servants who gathered around and witnessed their final breaths ought to absorb the lessons of the godly demise and be brought back to concentration upon the death of Jesus upon the cross. All confronted the dual pressures of grievous separation from loved ones and the admonition to concentrate fully upon the image of Christ. The messages of Good Friday to Easter must triumph now, however. This chapter shows how this much was true across the spectrum of German Catholicism, Lutheranism, and Calvinism.
