Excerpt from MLK at Southern Seminary
“There is something at the center of our faith which reminds us of this… We celebrated the event a few Sundays ago - something that reminds us that Good Friday may occupy the throne for a day, but ultimately it must give way to the triumphant beat of the drums of Easter!
“Yes, there is something in our faith that reminds us that even though evil at times will so shape events, that Caesar will occupy the palace and Christ the cross, one day that same Christ will rise up and split history into A.D. and B.C. so that even the life of Caesar must be dated by His name!”
- Martin Luther King, Jr. speaking at Southern Seminary, 1961 (Hear audio)
