Most people on earth think that death is the end, the final word.
This was the mentality of the Romans and the Pharisees in Jesus' time.
They thought that by killing Jesus they would have the last say and they would "get his inheritance". Matthew 21:38b (NRSV)
But on the third day God resurrected Jesus and raised him to Eternal Life.
And so Life had the final word.
Violence and death led to nothing.
