And he said to them, “Do not be amazed; you are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who has been crucified He has risen; He is not here; behold, here is the place where they laid Him. Mark 16:6
This is now the third time that Jesus was manifested to the disciples, after He was raised from the dead. John 21:14
According to the Bible and other historical facts, the resurrection of Jesus Christ is most definitely true. The Bible records the details of Christ’s resurrection and its impact on those who witnessed it. The resurrection is the basis of the faith that has changed the lives of millions throughout the world down through the centuries.
Scripture presents the resurrection of Jesus Christ as true in numerous passages. All four Gospel accounts record Christ’s resurrection as indisputable fact: Matthew 28:1–20; Mark 16:1–8; Luke 24:1–53; and John 20:1—21:25. The resurrected Christ also appears in the Book of Acts (Acts 1:1–11). So astonishing was this event that the lives of the people who saw the risen Christ were dramatically changed. The disciples went from a group of men frightened and in hiding to courageous witnesses sharing the gospel throughout the world. They risked their lives willingly, sang joyfully while in prison for preaching the gospel, and suffered untold hardships throughout their lives.
Most of the eleven apostles (the original twelve except for Judas Iscariot) were martyred for their faith, but none of them turned away from their Savior or denounced Him. Only a supernatural event such as the resurrection and the appearance of the risen Christ in a person can explain this phenomenal transformation.
First Corinthians 15 tells us how Christ’s resurrection proves He had the ultimate victory over sin and how, because of it, those who belong to Him can live victoriously over sin (v. 24–34). It promises that we, too, will have a glorious resurrection body like His (v. 35–49). Most gloriously, as a result of Christ’s resurrection, all who believe in Him have the ultimate victory over death (v. 50–58).
Dear believer, the resurrection of Jesus Christ is most definitely true. The Bible records the details of Christ’s resurrection and its impact on those who witnessed it. The resurrection is the basis of the faith, and our faith gives us victory over any form of pandemic (1 Cor. 15:57)’
Praise the Lord!
