Romans 5:12-15 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned– (13) for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. (14) Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come. (15) But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.

Easter is the judgment of humanity for the sin of Adam abandoning his role as God’s regent over creation. That is what happened on the cross.

1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit…

The resurrection is the first of many. Jesus’ resurrection not only shows that God the Father accepted his sacrifice for Adam’s race, it also shows that their is a new humanity. The resurrected Christ is the Hope for the Omega community, the renewed world. As Christ has overcome death with life, those who surrender their rebellion and declare their loyalty by grace through faith in Christ will likewise live beyond death. The fallen world is passing away, the undying world is coming!
