The importance of Jesus’ resurrection
- The only sign Jesus would give to a wicked generation
- One of the criteria used for apostleship was that the person had to be a witness of the resurrection.
- It was a focal point of the preaching of the early church.
- Belief in it is crucial for salvation
- Necessary for our justification
- Without it, our faith is useless and futile
- Christ’s resurrection is intrinsically linked to ours. If Christ was not raised, then neither are we and vice-versa.
