Historicity of The Resurrection: A Theological Approach of Evidence of The Resurrection of Christ In The New Testament

Made Astika

Abstract


Jesus is the resurrection and the life. He'll never wear grave clothes
again. When he appeared to his disciples after the resurrection, he
appeared not in a shroud of death, but walking in endless life.
The Lord Jesus is the Son of God who became man. He is very God
and very man. He was crucified, he died and was buried, and he was
raised from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures.
The proofs of resurrection can be found both in the Scripture and
also in the history. Historically, the empty tomb and Jesus appearances
to His disciples and many of His followers are clear proving that the
resurrection of Chris is real. Biblically, it was the main preaching and
teaching of the apostles. Beside that Jesus Himself prophesied and
teaches about His resurrection.
These three great facts--the resurrection appearances, the empty
tomb, and the origin of the Christian faith--all point unavoidably to one
conclusion: The resurrection of Jesus. Today the rational man can hardly
be blamed if he believes that on that first Easter morning a divine miracle
occurred. Further fact is, if no resurrection, there will no church, there
will no Christianity. Because of Jesus resurrection, the believers have
assurance future life. Because He lives, there is hope for the future; there
is certain hope for the salvation of the believers.
