The Power of the Resurrection

“Why do you seek the living among the dead?”

Luke 24: 5

We cannot consider the cross without embracing the fact that Jesus rose from the dead, and is living today at the right hand of the Father (Hebrews 10: 12). The resurrection of Jesus Christ is an established historical fact supported by the testimonies of many actual eyewitnesses and grounded in significant corroborating evidence, such as reliable historical accounts. However, this post (and the next post) will focus on the significance and absolute necessity of the resurrection as a foundational truth of our faith, rather than centering on the proof that it truly took place. Here is the clear presentation of the Gospel by which we are saved according to scripture: Jesus Christ died, was buried, and arose to life for our salvation.

The Apostle Paul boldly stated in 1 Corinthians 15:14 that “if Christ had not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain.” Therefore, in the next post, we will examine some of the most important outcomes of the resurrection.
