    We all are preparing for Easter/Resurrection Sunday this next Lord's day.

    How did the resurrection change things?

    Why was the resurrection necessary?

    The fact that Jesus rose from the dead is proof that God accepted Him as being the sacrifice for sin.

    The fact that Christ rose from the dead, verifies everything in Scripture as absolute truth. Christ spoke of inerrancy several times. His resurrection proves he was right. It also proves a 6-24 creation (though I know you disagree but don't quite understand).

    The resurrection of Christ opened up a new way of life. Death no longer has the same power as it did before.

    Also, Jesus' resurrection is the central event in the revelation of God's self--in Christ God is revealed as the God who transforms death into life, the God who overcomes. Without this most central event in Christianity we would have no reason to believe that Jesus was God incarnate.

    Also, in the resurrection of Jesus our resurrection is assured.

    Also, without the resurrection salvation would not have been effected--Paul says that without it "we would still be in our sins." (I Corinthians 15) This is much more than verification--it is undeniably part of the salvation brought through Christ.

    For me, the resurrection is more central to the Christian proclaimation of the gospel than even the cross! Often people speak of the resurrection as an afterthought to the cross, but without the resurrection the cross would mean nothing! The above only touch on the importance of the resurrection of Christ.

    Grace and Peace, Danny [​IMG]

    Amen brother Danny,

    The resurrection is central to our faith!
    The resurrection makes Christianity different from ALL other religions.
    The resurrection is a key element to the gospel of Christ, (1 Corinthians 15:55-57)
    I pray that you all will begin to understand the incredible greatness of His power for us who believe Him.
    This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated Him in the place of honor at God's right hand in the heavenly realms.

    "The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" -- that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.
