Here’s just a thought (77)…
God raised His son Jesus from the dead. This is an historical fact, not merely a teaching. This action vindicated all that Jesus had been teaching and doing for the past 3 1/2 years. This man was not only alive again after being buried in a tomb for three days, but was transformed from a human to a divine nature. This reality became a matter of “first importance” when preaching the gospel (1Corinthians 15: 3).
The fact of Jesus’ resurrection by God is the critical, core teaching of the Gospel, and the cornerstone of Biblical Christianity.
Understanding the truth about the resurrected Jesus will compel you to discard your misconceptions and share the true Bible teaching with others.
Preaching and teaching the resurrection of Jesus to eternal life is a matter of first importance, as is his exaltation as a man who is given the title ‘Lord Jesus Christ’. The resurrection of Jesus confirmed the promises God made to Abraham and David. Resurrection to eternal life is the substance of the Christian hope. It is also the means whereby the faithful dead can be made alive again to serve in the Kingdom on earth.
