Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. — 1 Peter 1:3
The resurrection of our Lord is the single greatest event in history. Had the Lord merely died, He would have been considered a great teacher and a moral leader, but He would not have proven Himself God. By coming out of the grave, He triumphed over death and hell, showed His sacrifice on the cross as being acceptable to God, and gave hope of eternal life to everyone who puts their trust in Him.
Every other religious leader lies buried in the earth. Mohammed lies dead and buried. Buddha, Confucius, Zoroaster, and all the others who have attempted to lead men and women into a religious experience apart from Almighty God could not defeat death.
But Jesus Christ, in what is one of the best documented facts in history, rose victorious from the grave. In this troubled world today, we can take hope in the risen Christ.
— David Jeremiah
