“Prove it!” 9 Truths About the Resurrection

“he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” 1 Peter 1:3

About the Resurrection:

  1. 300+ verses in the New Testament testify to & assume the resurrection happened.
  2. It was not resuscitation. Jesus had a new body & new life that was indestructible.
  3. It was a physical body. Jesus was able to be hugged (Matthew 28:9), He ate & drank (Luke 24:30), & He invited Thomas to touch his hand & side (John 20:27).
  4. Prove it: There were at least 500 witnesses, there was never a body produced, there was no clear argument presented against the fact, & the lives of people were transformed.
  5. We can now have NEW LIFE & LASTING CHANGE. The Bible calls this REGENERATION. 1 Peter 1:3; 2 Corinthians 5:17
  6. We can now have RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD. Ephesians 2:1,6; Romans 4:25
  7. We can now have REAL TIME ACCESS to God. Romans 8:11; Hebrews 7:23-25
  8. We can now have LIFE FOREVER. 2 Corinthians 4:14
  9. Without the Resurrection preaching is useless, faith is useless, our sins still remain, & we have no hope of life (1 Corinthians 15:14, 17, 19)

Being a Christian is about living out resurrection power. What does you life prove about Christ?
