TheResurrection Of Christ: A Non-NegotiableTruth! Matthew 28 Luke 24 John 20 1 Corinthians 15
"Without the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ the Christian faith would have been stillborn, for a living faith cannot survive a dead Savior." What happened? Where is His body? Why is the tomb empty? What does it mean?
1.The Roman Guard 2.The Roman Seal 3.The Stone 4.The Empty Tomb 5.The Grave Clothes 6.The Body Never Found 7.The Eye Witnesses 8. Resurrection Appearances 9.The Initial Unbelief 10.The Radically Changed Disciples
2. The Mistaken Tomb Theory This theory suggests that because it was early in the morning the disciples mistakenly went to the wrong tomb—one that was empty—and were met by a gardener who said, “He is not here,” meaning “The man you’re looking for is buried somewhere else.”.
4. The Hallucination Theory This is currently the most popular theory put forward by those who do not want to believe in the Resurrection. It suggests that Jesus actually died, but that His disciples wanted to believe in His resurrection so badly that they had something like a mass hallucination.
The Resurrection Of Jesus Christ Is Perhaps The Best-Attested Fact Of Ancient History. There are many convincing proofs and facts that would lead us to take this Step of Faith in The Resurrection 3 After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. Acts 1:3 New International Version (NIV)
The Resurrection Is A Non-Negotiable Doctrine Of The Christian Faith. If Jesus did not rise from the dead, then He is a false prophet and not the Son of God. He could not be our Savior and Lord if He is still dead in the tomb. That’s what is at stake here. We can trust nothing that He said if He is still dead. We can trust nothing The Word of God says if He is still dead. If Christ was not raised from the dead to defeat sin and death, we have no ‘Blessed Hope’ of our bodily resurrection. Everything we believe stands or falls on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. That’s why this is a non-negotiable doctrine. 1 Corinthians 15.
The Resurrection Of Jesus Gives Us Hope In Life And In The Face Of Death. Because He lives we too shall live both now and for eternity. 1 Corinthians 15. The Resurrection Is A Message The World Must Hear. Sometimes we preach the Cross and forget the Empty Tomb. But the Cross cannot save unless Christ is risen from the dead. The world needs to know that Jesus Christ is alive today. A dead Jesus helps no one, a living Christ can heal, save, forgive, pardon, restore, cleanse, renew, guide, empower, transform and when the moment comes, He can take us to be in His presence for eternity.
