THE RESURRECTION
• The facts (1 Cor 15:3-4)
THE RESURRECTION
Acts 17:31–32
…he has fixed a day on which he will judge
the world in righteousness by a man whom
he has appointed; and of this he has given
proof to all by raising him from the dead.”
Now when they heard of the resurrection of
the dead, some mocked…
THE RESURRECTION
Marcus Borg, Jesus Seminar
“As a child, I took it for granted that Easter meant
that Jesus literally rose from the dead. I now see
Easter very differently. For me, it is irrelevant
whether or not the tomb was empty. Whether
Easter involved something remarkable happening
to the physical body of Jesus is irrelevant.”
THE RESURRECTION
• The facts (v3-4)
• The proof (v5-8)
THE RESURRECTION
John Updike’s "Seven Stanzas at Easter”
“Make no mistake: if He rose at all it was as
His body; if the cells’ dissolution did not
reverse, the molecules reknit, the amino
acids rekindle, the Church will fall….”
BECAUSE JESUS
ROSE…
1. Sins became forgivable (v1718)
John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that He gave
His only begotten Son, that whoever
believes in Him shall not perish, but have
eternal life.

ROSE…

Romans 4:25
He was delivered over to death for our sins
and was raised to life for our justification.
BECAUSE JESUS
ROSE…
2. Death became temporary (v2022)
Jack Kerouac
“I am young now and can look upon my body
and soul with pride. But it will be mangled
soon, and later it will begin to disintegrate,
and then I shall die, and die conclusively. How
can we face such a fact, and not live in fear?”
BECAUSE JESUS
ROSE…
2. Death became temporary (v2022)
At death: we’re at home with Jesus (2 Cor 5)
At resurrection: we receive our glorified bodies
not a reanimation of our current bodies
but a new creation, immortal, powerful,
perfect
Benjamin Franklin’s epitaph
The Body of B. Franklin, Printer Like the
Cover of an old Book Its contents torn out,
And stript of its Lettering and Guilding, Lies
here, Food for Worms,
But the Work shall not be wholly lost: For it
will, as he believ'd, Appear once more In a
new & more perfect Edition, Corrected and
amended by the Author.
BECAUSE JESUS
ROSE…
3. Life became meaningful
(v19,32,58)

ROSE…
Sins became forgivable
Death became temporary
Life became meaningful
