Why Does Jesus’ Resurrection Matter?
Considering Its Relevance for Today
— http://vimeo.com/8900766 —
[Romans 10:9] because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
The above verse provides undisputable, categorical, explicit, unambiguous, and incontrovertible proof that the triumphant resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ is indeed the essence of the pure gospel.
[Romans 10:14] How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?
Shall we then not take all the more care to preach the correct gospel of the Lord Jesus’s resurrection? Certainly, the resurrection itself entails death on the cross, since resurrection means “rising from the dead”.
