The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ the humanity took a leap of quality, passing from the condition of not divine to the state of deified by the Holy Spirit, that is, organically assumed and incorporated in the communion of the Holy Trinity Family .

This qualitative leap started at the moment of death and resurrection of Jesus on the cross. When he died, Jesus Christ defeated death and conquered the eternal life, not only for him but also for all of us.

While on the cross, precisely what in the man is mortal was dying in a progressive manner, what is immortal in human beings was glorified and assumed in progressive manner and incorporated into God’s Family by the tenderness of the Holy Spirit.

This means that while the deadly reality of Jesus was dying on the cross, his immortal being was glorified by the Holy Spirit.

Thus, when the last element of the mortal man of Jesus died, his immortal life was fully risen, and accepted and incorporated into the Family of the Holy Trinity.

In other words, in Jesus Christ, the process of dying corresponded exactly to the delivery process by which the New Man was glorified and in God.

This means that Jesus defeated death in the very act of dying. Referring to the prayer of Jesus in the Garden of Olives, the Letter to the Hebrews says that Jesus defeated death he asked the Father to free him of the dead and was attended because of their mercy (Heb 5, 7).

God delivered Jesus from death raised him, says the Letter to the Hebrews. But if the resurrection was something after the act of dying, Jesus had not conquered death.
But the Letter to the Hebrews says that Jesus asked the Father to free him from death and was attended.
This release of death means that when Jesus died to what it was mortal, his immortal life was fully glorified.
In other words, Jesus Christ overcame death for him and for all of us. This is possible because Jesus performs an organic union with all humanity.

This means that the resurrection of Jesus is a simultaneous process. This means that the death and resurrection of Jesus occurred as two processes simultaneously.

From this tension between life and death become the failure of death and the victory of the New Life in Jesus Christ. In other words, Jesus did not remain a moment under the dominion of death.
The protagonist of this mystery of the victory of life over death is the Holy Spirit. The Lord of life was not one second under the dominion of death.

We can say with the Easter liturgy: “Dying, Jesus destroyed our death and resurrecting, restored us and led us to the fullness of our lives.
Despite sin, God´s plan of salvation remained intact. Saint Paul said that God's will is that all people be saved and get knowledge of God (1 Tim 2, 4).
Then he adds: God has reconciled humanity, in Christ, not taking account of the sins of men (2 Cor 5: 18-19).

In reality the resurrection of Christ opens the fullness of time. That means that the time to give birth. The New Humanity has begun.

With the victory over sin and death, Jesus Christ inaugurates the New Humanity. These are the words of Saint Paul: “But when he reached the fullness of time God sent his Son, born of a woman.
He was born under the rule of law, to redeem those who were under the rule of law and thus could be children of God.
And because we are sons, And because we are sons, God sent the Holy Spirit to our hearts which calls into our hearts: Abba, Father. Thus we are no longer slaves but a sons and heir of God's grace (Gal 4, 4-7).

With her motherly love, the Holy Spirit works in our hearts and brings us to the divine condition.
This is what the Gospel of Saint John mean when he says that we must be born again by the Holy Spirit and water to enter the kingdom of God.
Because what is born of flesh is flesh and what is born of the Spirit is spirit (Jo 3 5-6). The Epistle to the Romans says that the Holy Spirit is God's love poured into our hearts (Rom 5, 5).

The Second Letter to the Corinthians says that while our exterior being degraded at progressive manner, our interior will be reinforced by action of the Holy Spirit (2 Cor 4, 16).

The inner man is our spiritual dimension, the inner man which is renewed every day by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the beginning of victory over death for him and for all humanity, because he is an organic whole, that is, interactive and dynamic.
Because it is spiritual and personal, our inner being is proportional to divine persons. It is true that human beings are not equal to the divine persons, but it is proportional.
Saint John says that exist an organic union with Jesus and with the Holy Trinity. This organic union is similar to the union which exists between the strain of the vine and its branches.
Our life is fruitful as far as we are united to the vine branches, Jesus said (Jo 15: 4-5). The sap, that is, the Holy Spirit, comes from the strain to the branches.
Adam with his sin, put humanity on the path to failure. Christ, as their total allegiance to God, introduced us on the path to communion of the Kingdom of God.

Just as in Adam all people die, says the Letter to the Romans, in Christ, the New Adam, all people live a New Life, because Jesus Christ is the New Adam (Rom 5, 17).

Our union with God is deeper according to our fellowship with the brothers. Our communion with God is greater the deeper is our fellowship with our brothers.
The New Creation is mankind restored by the resurrection of Christ.
In fact we are born again by the Spirit of the Risen Christ.
In Communion With You
