The Resurrection

Jesus lives!

The living Christ makes a real difference in the lives of those who turn to Him. And that is only the beginning. We too shall be resurrected in the end!

“Why should it be thought incredible by you that God raises the dead?” Acts 26:8.

Justin Martyr, A.D.155, answering skeptics concerning a future resurrection:

Consider this hypothesis; if you were not such as you are, born of such parents, and someone were to show you the human seed and a picture of a man, and assure you that the one could grow into the other, would you believe it before you saw it happening? No one would dare to deny [that you wouldn’t]. In the same way unbelief prevails about the resurrection of the dead because you have never seen an instance of it. But as you at first would not have believed that from a little drop such beings [as men] could develop, yet you see it happening, so consider that it is possible for human bodies, dissolved and scattered in the earth like seeds, to rise again in due time by God’s decree and be clothed with incorruption.
