The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most significant event in human history. Christianity is based on the resurrection of Jesus. Jesus Christ was resurrected after his crucifixion on the cross. Every man, woman or child must make a choice as to whether they believe that or not. If Jesus was just a good moral man and did not rise from the dead (as some believe and teach) then he was not the Son of God. However, I believe the words of scripture. Jesus Christ is the Son of God and today He Lives!!!
Featured Resurrection Quote “If Jesus rose from the dead, then you have to accept all that he said; if he didn’t rise from the dead, then why worry about any of what he said? The issue on which everything hangs is not whether or not you like his teaching but whether or not he rose from the dead.”― Timothy Keller, The Reason for God: Belief in an Age of Skepticism
Quotes on the Resurrection
The tomb of Christ is famous because of what it DOES NOT CONTAIN.” Sam Morris
We live and die; Christ died and lived! John Stott
The resurrection of Jesus changes the face of death for all His people. Death is no longer a prison, but a passage into God’s presence. Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won’t stay there. Clarence W. Hall
There is no historic incident better or more variously supported than the resurrection of Christ. Brooke Foss Wescott
“Jesus’s resurrection is the beginning of God’s new project not to snatch people away from earth to heaven but to colonize earth with the life of heaven. That, after all, is what the Lord’s Prayer is about.”― N.T. Wright
“A dead Christ I must do everything for; a living Christ does everything for me.”― Andrew Murray, Jesus Himself
“I know the resurrection is a fact, and Watergate proved it to me. How? Because 12 men testified they had seen Jesus raised from the dead, then they proclaimed that truth for 40 years, never once denying it. Every one was beaten, tortured, stoned and put in prison. They would not have endured that if it weren’t true. Watergate embroiled 12 of the most powerful men in the world-and they couldn’t keep a lie for three weeks. You’re telling me 12 apostles could keep a lie for 40 years? Absolutely impossible.”― Charles Colson

Bible Verses About the Resurrection

Do you believe the evidence that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead? If so, then you must accept the consequence that He is the Son of God. You must also believe that someday He will judge you and give you eternal life, if you obey the gospel and then live a faithful life. Each of us has a choice. What will you choose to believe? When people do not properly respond to the gospel, they demonstrate that they do not truly appreciate the meaning of Jesus’ resurrection. My prayer today is that you do come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life.
