Life of Christ Lesson 185a: The Resurrection Announced

March 16, 2020 @ 3:11 am

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of the Christian faith.  Without it, there would be no Christian faith:  ". . . if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching in vain, and your faith is also vain . . . and ye are yet in your sins".  Of all the major world religions, only four are based on personalities instead of philosophical propositions.  Of the billions who are Jews, Budhists, or Muslims, no one claims that their founder came out his grave in a resurrected, glorified body.  Christianity alone makes that claim for Jesus Christ, and for a valid reason: because it is true.

In these messages on "The Resurrection of Christ," we give repeated reasons for its truth from Scripture, logical reasoning, post-resurrection historical circumstances, and absolutely changed lives.  The women disciples of Christ were the first people in the world to hear and share the marvelous message of His resurrection, and that is a wonderful compensation for the mess Eve began!  

Learn, too, about the appearances, messages, and various locations of what we call "the tomb stone angel," "the tomb shelf angel," and "the two standing angels".  The angels gave confirmation of the reality of Christ's resurrection in two ways:  He fulfilled His own predictions about a third-day resurrection, and the empty tomb ("Come, see the place where the Lord lay" (Matthew 28:6).  The women were to compare what they SAW inside that tomb with what the had HEARD from the Lord's own lips - and when they put those two things together . . . BINGO!  They believed, and their sorrow was turned to joy, just as the Lord promised (John 16:20)!
