The resurrection is a culmination of Christ’s ministry on earth. I love to analyze scripture. Pour over it to understand all God is saying to me. The resurrection accounts have an incredible amount of insight to offer the believer. We have heard the sermons: Jesus first appears to a woman, the road to Emmaus, the upper room, Thomas’s doubts and the ascension. The lessons we can learn from the resurrection are too many to explore in one article or even one lifetime. The truths gleaned from scripture are just that powerful. The greatest truth though is that it happened. Luke 24:6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee.
There is no great secret. Everything Jesus did in his ministry led to this moment. The stain of sin has been washed away, and death is no longer a finality. Christ’s resurrection is resurrection for all who will receive it.
