Jesus Christ Rose from the Dead
Construction Zone 8: Jesus Christ
Did Jesus rise from the dead?
Yes! Jesus rose again and is alive today! Acts 1:3b – 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
Jesus rose from His grave by His own power. Nobody has ever risen from the grave like Jesus did!
Because Jesus rose from the dead, He proved forever that He has the power to raise others from the dead. In fact, there is coming a time when God will resurrect everyone (bring them all to life again) [endash] either to be glorified for heaven, or to be sent to everlasting death in hell.
Jesus really was dead. The soldiers used a spear to make sure He was really dead. His friends and family buried Him and sealed His tomb. When they came to visit His grave later, it was open; and His body was gone!
Jesus really did come back to life. And He is still alive to this day.
Philippians 3:10-11 – That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
If Christ had not risen, He would have been just like any other man. But Jesus showed the world that He is worthy to be worshipped as God. He got victory over sin and death as only God Himself could.
