Viral video declares the unthinkable, impossible and unfathomable message of Easter

I love the Easter message in this 2-minute, 45-second video produced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The video, called "Because of Him," was posted on YouTube on Palm Sunday and in just five days it surpassed 2.6 million views.

It has no dialogue but bears the hope of the season in text and at-a-glance moments of life and history. It declares:

"He was a carpenter, a teacher, an outcast, a leader. Yet he did what no carpenter, teacher, outcast, leader had ever done. Like all who preceded him, he lived, and he died. But unlike all who preceded him, he rose from the dead. ... He lives.

"Because of him, guilt becomes peace, regret becomes relief, despair becomes hope.

I hope you enjoy it. Happy Easter.
