Jesus Christ Rose from the Dead
Adventure 8: Jesus Christ
Did Jesus rise from the dead?
Yes! Jesus rose again and is alive today! The truth of His resurrection is the heart of the Gospel message. Acts 1:2b-3 – He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.
This Truth Makes
After three days in His tomb, Jesus rose from the dead by His own power. Nobody has ever risen from the dead like Jesus did!
John 10:18 – “No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”
Because Jesus rose from the grave, He has the power to raise all others from the dead. In fact, there is coming a time when God will resurrect everyone to either everlasting
reward or everlasting punishment.
John 5:28-29 – “Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come
forth – those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.”
If Christ did not rise from the grave, He would still be there like He was just any other man. But Jesus proved to the world that He is worthy of all our worship and service. He conquered sin and death as only God Himself could!
