The Resurrection

The message of the resurrection
⦁ It is the event that gives power to salvation.
⦁ “By which also you are saved”
⦁ Saving faith rests on this fact.

You can oppose it, but you can’t ignore it!
⦁ No fence-sitting
⦁ No one stays neutral
⦁ Either it’s a lie
⦁ Or it’s the fact of history that marks the love of God among us.

1 Corinthians 15:1-11

The Fact of Christ’s Resurrection

15 Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast [a]the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.

For I delivered to you [b]as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; then He appeared to [c]James, then to all the apostles; and last of all, as [d]to one untimely born, He appeared to me also. For I am the least of the apostles, [e]and not fit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain; but I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me. 11 Whether then it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed.
