The Resurrection of Christ

Matthew 28:1-8, “Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. 2 And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it. 3 His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. 4 And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men.

5 But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. 6 He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7 And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”

8 So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word.”

He Has Risen

After Jesus body was placed in a tomb, sealed with a huge stone guarded by a cohort of Roman soldiers He was raised from the dead. The Angel announced go quickly and tell his disciples that he was raised from the dead. This is the most profound event in human history! The resurrection of Jesus Christ prove beyond a shadow of doubt that he is God. No other Spiritual leader in human history including Buddha and Mohammed claim to have been raised from the dead.

The resurrection Jesus Christ is the acid test of whether Christianity is true or not. The whole message of Christ rest on the historical fact of his resurrection. Paul the Apostle declared “And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. 1st Corinthians 15:17.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead makes Him the most unique person in human history. It is God’s way of shouting to the whole human race “I AM ALIVE”
