Did Jesus Truly Rise from the Dead?


According to the Bible, our redemption, forgiveness of sin, and salvation hinge on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. If Jesus had died on the cross but remained in the grave, His death would have no redeeming power. The apostle Paul clearly states in 1 Corinthians 15:17: "And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!"


I do not wish to focus on and speak of the evidence for the resurrection of Christ in the history of Christianity, but rather, I want to speak about the present day witnesses of His life, His working, and His power. We do not need to rely on the memorials of history. Anyone who comes to Him will experience Him. In Him I have found the foundation for my life and peace in my heart.

Professor Karl Heim stated it well: "Christendom would have died a long time ago if the repeated miracle of people receiving forgiveness and peace through the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus would not continually reoccur." Some of our loved ones who have gone on into eternity before us have already caught a glimpse of Him as they stood on the threshold of eternity. They were still with us, but the door into eternity was slightly opened to their eyes. The last words of my father were: "Come, Lord, take me to be with You in Your heavenly Kingdom." No, by believing in the risen Christ, we are not following "cunningly devised fables" (2 Peter 1:16). It is reality!
