The Resurrection of Jesus

24 Mar

john11_25-26The angel said to the woman, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.  “He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said.  Come, see the place where He was lying. “Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.” 

Matthew 28:5-7

Without the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, there would be no Christianity.  Just as Jesus promised He rose from the dead. Because of this we can be confident that all his promises are true. Jesus bodily resurrection from the dead is proof that He was no false prophet. He had power over death. The resurrection is the basis for our faith because Jesus proved to be more than just a human leader, He is the Son of God.


Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.  Do you believe this?”  John 11:25,26

Now if Christ is preached, that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?  But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised; and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain. Moreover we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified against God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised.  For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised; and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.    1 Corinthians 15:12-17

There were eyewitness accounts that Jesus rose from the dead. The apostles risked being martyred for preaching the truth of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Millions of lives have been changed because of this life changing message of what Jesus did at the Cross, that He suffered, and died and rose again and is alive today!


Christ’ sacrifice on the cross  accomplished God’s plan.  Our sins are forgiven, and we will live forever with Jesus in Heaven.  Without the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead, there would be no Christianity. Jesus’ Resurrection is central to our faith because it demonstrates God’s power over death and assures us believers that one day that we also will be resurrected. His resurrection is the beginning of eternal life for all who believe in Him.
