Jesus Christ is Alive
The signature fact that Jesus Christ rose from the dead is most important to the Good News of Jesus Christ. If Jesus Christ had not risen from the dead; he would have been just like any other religious leader that has appeared throughout history. However, the fact that He did rise from the dead sets Him apart as God – The Way – The Truth – and The Life.
In addition, the resurrection of Jesus Christ shows the world that Jesus Christ’s death on the cross was accepted by God as satisfactory payment for the sins of mankind. The resurrection also shows that Jesus Christ conquered Satan, Sin and, Death.
Christ told His followers various times that He would rise from the dead. He told them that they would see Him again. If He had not risen, then everything He said and taught would have been in question. But, since He did rise from the dead, like He said He would, then we know that all of His Words are true.
“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
His Resurrection from the Dead
Jesus Christ is Alive. Many saw Him alive after His death. He truly was dead before being laid in the tomb. The Romans were expert executioners and had perfected their craft of killing people by crucifixion. There was no doubt that Christ had died. There is also no doubt that He rose from the dead. If one or two people claimed to see Him, then we would have to question-yet, hundreds of people testified of seeing Him Alive.
He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
