Death or life?

Yesterday Ange was sharing with me her disappointment at only being able to go to the Good Friday service over Easter (due to work).

It got me thinking about Easter and how we explain what the gospel is. Regularly, Christians say that the gospel is "that Jesus died for your sins."

This is true, he did die for our sins. But when we celebrate Easter, we celebrate the resurrection.

Therefore, shouldn't we tell people that the gospel is that Jesus rose from the grave? It's not as though you miss the death to get to the resurrection...
