The literal, physical, bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ is incredibly important. It affects all doctrines…
  • Bibliology (=Bible) – Jesus’ resurrection is announced and proclaimed as undeniable historical fact in the true, inerrant, and inspired pages of Scripture. You deny the resurrection, you deny God’s Word as true and therefore make God a liar.
  • Theology Proper (=God) – Jesus’ resurrection reveals the absolutely unstoppable and unsurpassing power of God who can raise the dead to new life!
  • Anthropology – Jesus had to die and conquer death because man is so sinful and helpless that he can’t conquer death in his own strength
  • Christology – Jesus’ resurrection shows that He Himself has the power to rise from the dead—proof of his deity!
  • Pneumatology – Jesus rose from the power of the Holy Spirit who is God and able to raise Christ from the dead.
  • Angelology – The angels at the tomb were faithfully announcing that Jesus was not there—He had RISEN, just as he said!
  • Soteriology (=salvation) – The resurrection of Jesus guarantees that we as sinners have a living Savior who has conquered the grave and has secured our salvation.
  • Israelology – The resurrection of Jesus shows how Jesus fulfilled Isaiah’s prophecy to Judah about their coming Messiah who would “prolong his days” and “See his offspring again” (Isaiah 53:10) and it guarantees that Jesus will give spiritual life and raise the deadened Israelites to new spiritual life in the future (Romans 11:25-27).
  • Ecclesiology – Just as Jesus’ resurrection shows his life that he will live forevermore, so it is with the Christian who is spiritually resurrected. He now and forevermore is a part of the Church—the Body of Christ!
  • Eschatology – Jesus’ resurrection absolutely guarantees that He will come back someday and raise US and all who have died “in Christ” to be with Him in the glories of heaven to dwell with Him in eternal bliss and happiness!
Praise God that Jesus is ris'n from the dead!

Romans 4:25 25 He who was delivered over because of our transgressions, and was raised because of our justification.
