The Resurrection #2

For 20 centuries, the world has wrestled over the truth of these seven powerful words: “He (Jesus) is not here; he has risen!”
Despite the fact there was in history, and documented in the Bible, eyewitness testimony that this man, Jesus, crucified on Calvary, taken down from the cross, prepared for burial, placed in a borrowed tomb, a heavy stone positioned in front of the tomb, and on the 3rd day…gone, risen in bodily form. Despite this, many people do and will choose to dispute and deny this truth and these claims. Many have and will not believe, many will put their faith and trust in gods (small g) when ironically it takes so much greater faith to believe Jesus doesn’t exist, than faith that he does. Jesus is the only one to have done what he said he would do!
The resurrection is the cornerstone of Christianity. If Jesus rose from the dead, then Christianity is true. If he did not, then it is false. It is that simple.
C.S. Lewis said “You must make your choice. Either this man (Jesus) was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God”
