The resurrection of Christ is God’s logical, irrefutable, fundamental proof for all the claims of Christianity. Namely that Jesus is the promised Messiah (Isa.7:14), the God/man (John 1:1,14) the Son of God (John 3:16; Roms.1:4), Savior of His people (Matt.1:21), the coming Judge of all the world (Acts 17:31), the One who was victorious over Satan (IJn3:8; Heb.2:14), sin (Heb.9:26) and death (1Cor 15:26). And the One who promises life abundantly now (John 10:10) and eternal life with Him after death in a glorified resurrected body (John 11:25,26; 1Cor.15:50-57). As we will see in Paul’s logic there is no Christianity apart from the resurrection.
The Scriptures claim that, after Jesus died, He was resurrected on the third day by His Father. The apostles and New Testament Christians boldly based everything that they taught on the truthfulness of Christ resurrection.
