John 11:25 (NLT)

Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life.[a] Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.

Maybe I’ve read it somewhere, or someone has told me, but I seem to think I’ve heard that the resurrection of Jesus has been investigated and examined more times that many other events in history.

To me that tells me that people are either more desperate to prove Christ’s resurrection actually happened, or conversely, there are more skeptics who are willing to try to prove it all a huge hoax.

Either way, it gives the events of that first Easter more air-time and surely as Christians we should be happy for the opportunity to discuss and convince others who do not believe in Christ, that He did die at Calvary just so we could be forgiven.

You see, without resurrection there is no hope. Indeed, without resurrection, there is no Christianity.

How true is that!

If Jesus hadn’t been born; if Jesus hadn’t been crucified; if Jesus hadn’t risen from the grave…just think what sort of state this world would be in!
