The question about the resurrection of Christ has to be one of the most significant and important questions one can ever ask. Within the framework of intellectual honesty; it cannot be dismissed with glib answers.
The Apostle Paul said that ‘Christians should be the most pitied people in the world if the resurrection never took place. ‘ They got stoned. Burnt at the stake. Fed to lions. Beheaded. Torn apart. What was the point of it all if the resurrection never happened…why would you go through such things for a lie.
Such was the life of those who saw Christ crucified, dead, buried and 3 days later raised to life again. Many have tried to discount the resurrection. Many will dismiss it with rhetorical glibness. But – those who honestly look into the matter will find, that its not such an easy historical fact to dismiss and have to conclude… Something happened here which is beyond all reasoning.
The question I ask you today…what consequences does the resurrection have for you.
