“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in Me…shall never die.” – John 11:25,26
Jesus conquered death in the miracle of the resurrection after His death on the cross. “He was buried, and He was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.” (1 Corinthians 15:4) This miracle also allows us to experience life after the grave, in addition to eternal life, which will be forever in His presence, if we have been saved. “For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.” (1 Corinthians 15:21)
Jesus’ death and resurrection story is the miracle of history (as is His virgin birth). This miracle truly made it possible for us who serve the risen Savior to experience life eternal with Him. No other religion offers the Hope found in the risen Savior – all others offer only religious views taught by some sort of leader who is dead (most even have a well-documented grave site!). Jesus stands alone as the only leader to have documented, eyewitness accounts (even from unbelievers) that prove He did not stay dead!
