Our world is in an awful state at present, but can you imagine what it would be like if Jesus had never been born or if he hadn’t died at Calvary?
John 11:25 (NLT)
Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. 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.
For years, people have investigated the facts of the resurrection. Now that tells me that people are either desperate to prove conclusively to the unbelievers that Christ’s resurrection actually happened, or that they are keen to prove us believers that the resurrection was simply a huge hoax.
I don’t know which of these categories of people you fall into, but anything that gives us believers the opportunity to discuss the facts of that first Easter, and tell others why we believe in Christ’s resurrection, has to be positive doesn’t it, as if we don’t talk about the really meaning of Easter, how will the rest of the world know that Christ died 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 now!
