Risen Indeed

Sunday, April 20, 2014

On this Easter Day, sometimes referred to as Resurrection Sunday, Christians around the world examine the historical and personal implications of Christ dying on the cross for our sins, being buried, and then rising again on the 3rd day according to prophecies made centuries before...

When the Bible was written, there were still plenty of eyewitnesses around who experienced the events as they happened, and indeed, the eyewitnesses perhaps form the strongest proof of the resurrection itself...

Some skeptics have proposed that the disciples actually schemed and hid the body of Christ, and propagated the fanciful story of the resurrection ....

And yet almost all of them died martyrs'deaths still claiming Christ's resurrection as truth, which shows they believed not in a myth of their own manufacture, but the Real Deal.... not to mention all the OTHER eyewitnesses to Christ being alive post crucifixion and burial, and interacting with people all across Israel, including 500 at one time.

It's a pivotal moment in history: that Christ died for our sins, and God raised Him from the dead, all according to scripture. What an incredible truth! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!
