Without the resurrection, Christianity simply would not exist. All of Jesus’ life, the miracles he performed, and the claims he made about himself would be pure nonsense without the resurrection. History would have long ago forgotten about the zealot who claimed to be the Son of God, but lacked the capacity to save himself from death. It’s only when we understand Jesus’ life and ministry in light of the resurrection that it all makes sense.
Today, we’re going to look at why the resurrection is so much more than a cold historical fact. The resurrection is a life-changing event that we have the opportunity to experience personally today.
