On the Third Day He Rose From the Dead

Apostle’s Creed - Week 6  

 

ON THE THIRD DAY HE (JESUS) ROSE AGAIN FROM THE DEAD

 

“FOR IF THERE IS NO RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD, THEN CHRIST HAS NOT BEEN RAISED EITHER. AND IF CHRIST HAS NOT BEEN RAISED, THEN ALL OUR PREACHING IS USELESS, AND YOUR FAITH IS USELESS. AND WE APOSTLES WOULD ALL BE LYING ABOUT GOD – FOR WE HAVE SAID THAT GOD RAISED CHRIST FROM THE GRAVE. BUT THAT CAN’T BE TRUE IF THERE IS NO RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD. AND IF THERE IS NO RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD, THEN CHRIST HAS NOT BEEN RAISED. AND IF CHRIST HAS NOT BEEN RAISED, THEN YOUR FAITH IS USELESS AND YOU ARE STILL GUILTY OF YOUR SINS. IN THAT CASE, ALL WHO HAVE DIED BELIEVING IN CHRIST ARE LOST! AND IF OUR HOPE IN CHRIST IS ONLY FOR THIS LIFE, WE ARE MORE TO BE PITIED THAN ANYONE IN THE WORLD.”  1 CORINTHIANS 15:13-19 

 

 

WITHOUT THE RESURRECTION THERE IS NO CHRISTIANITY 

 

  1. THE PROBLEM

 

  • EMPTY GOSPEL

 

“AND IF CHRIST IS NOT RISEN, THEN OUR PREACHING IS USELESS” – 1 CORINTHIANS 15:14

 

“NOW I WOULD REMIND YOU, BROTHERS, OF THE GOSPEL I PREACHED TO YOU, WHICH YOU RECEIVED, IN WHICH YOU STAND, AND BY WHICH YOU ARE BEING SAVED” – 1 CORINTHIANS 15:1-2

 

A DEAD SAVIOR CAN’T SAVE ANYONE

 

  • EMPTY FAITH

 

“…AND YOUR FAITH IS USELESS…” 1 CORINTHIANS 15:14

 

  • STILL SINNERS

 

“AND IF CHRIST HAS NOT BEEN RAISED, THEN YOUR FAITH IS USELESS AND YOU ARE STILL GUILTY OF YOUR SINS” – 1 CORINTHIANS 15:17 

 

  • NO HOPE 

 

 

“IF THE DEAD ARE NOT RAISED, LET US EAT AND DRINK, FOR TOMORROW WE DIE” 1 Corinthians 15:32 

 

“BUT IN FACT, CHRIST HAS BEEN RAISED FROM THE DEAD. HE IS THE FIRST OF A GREAT HARVEST OF ALL WHO HAVE DIED.” – 1 CORINTHIANS 15:20

 

  1. THE PROOF 

 

 

“IF I WERE AN ENEMY OF CHRISTIANITY, I’D AIM RIGHT AT THE RESURRECTION, BECAUSE THAT’S THE HEART OF CHRISTIANITY” – BILLY GRAHAM 

 

 

“…HE WAS RASIED FROM THE DEAD ON THE THIRD DAY, JUST AS THE SCRIPTURES SAID. HE WAS SEEN BY PETER AND THEN BY THE TWELVE. AFTER THAT HE WAS SEEN BY MORE THAN 500 OF HIS FOLLOWERS AT ONE TIME, MOST OF WHOM ARE STILL ALIVE, THOUGH SOME HAVE DIED. THEN HE WAS SEEN BY JAMES AND LATER BY ALL OF THE APOSTLES. LAST OF ALL, AS THOUGH I HAD BEEN BORN AT THE WRONG TIME, I ALSO SAW HIM.” – 1 CORINTHIANS 15:4-9


“BUT ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK, AT EARLY DAWN, THEY WENT TO THE TOMB, TAKING THE SPICES THEY HAD PREPARED. AND THEY FOUND THE STONE ROLLED AWAY FROM THE TOMB, BUT WHEN THEY WENT IN THEY DID NOT FIND THE BODY OF THE LORD JESUS. WHILE THEY WERE PERPLEXED ABOUT THIS, BEHOLD, TWO MEN STOOD BY THEM IN DAZZLING APPAREL. AND AS THEY WERE FRIGHTENED AND BOWED THEIR FACES TO THE GROUND, THE MEN SAID TO THEM, “WHY DO YOU SEEK THE LIVING AMONG THE DEAD? HE IS NOT HERE, BUT HAS RISEN. REMEMBER HOW HE TOLD YOU…” LUKE 24:1-6

 

“WE’RE GOING UP TO JERUSALEM, WHERE THE SON OF MAN WILL BE BETRAYED TO THE LEADING PRIESTS AND THE TEACHERS OF RELIGIOUS LAW. THEY WILL SENTENCE HIM TO DIE. THEN THEY WILL HAND HIM OVER TO THE ROMANS TO BE MOCKED, FLOGGED WITH A WHIP, AND CRUCIFIED. BUT ON THE THIRD DAY HE WILL BE RAISED FROM THE DEAD.” – MATTHEW 20:18-19

 

“LET ME NOW REMIND YOU, DEAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS, OF THE GOOD NEWS I PREACHED TO YOU BEFORE. YOU WELCOMED IT THEN, AND YOU STILL STAND FIRM IN IT. IT IS THIS GOOD NEWS THAT SAVES YOU IF YOU CONTINUE TO BELIEVE THE MESSAGE I TOLD YOU – UNLESS, OF COURSE, YOU BELIEVED SOMETHING THAT WAS NEVER TRUE IN THE FIRST PLACE. I PASSED ON TO YOU WHAT WAS MOST IMPORTANT AND WHAT HAD ALSO BEEN PASSED ON TO ME. CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS, JUST AS THE SCRIPTURES SAID. HE WAS BURIED, AND HE WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD ON THE THIRD DAY, JUST AS THE SCRIPTURES SAID.” 1 CORINTHIANS 1-4

 

  1. THE PROMISE

 

The resurrection promises 4 things:

 

  1. OUR FAITH HAS MEANING 
  2. WE’VE BEEN FORGIVEN
  3. WE CAN BE CERTAIN ABOUT OUR FUTURE
  4. WE CAN WALK IN RESURRECTION POWER

 

 

“WHEN JESUS CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED, HE PAID SIN’S PENALTY; HIS RISING FROM THE GRAVE REVEALED HIS DEATH’S SUFFICIENCY” – ????

 

 

THE RESURRECTION IS THE FATHER’S “AMEN” TO THE SON’S “IT IS FINISHED” Our Daily Bread

 

 

THE RESURRECTION SECURES THE PROMISE OF OUR SALVATION.

 

“HE (JESUS) WAS DELIVERED UP FOR OUR SINS, AND ROSE AGAIN FOR OUR JUSTIFICATION” – ROMANS 4:25 

 

“BLESSED BE THE GOD AND FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST! ACCORDING TO HIS GREAT MERCY, HE HAS CAUSED US TO BE BORN AGAIN TO A LIVING HOPE THOUGH THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST FROM THE DEAD, TO AN INHERITANCE THAT IS IMPERISHABLE, UNDEFILED, AND UNFADING…” 1 PETER 1:3-4

 

“THE SPIRIT OF GOD, WHO RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD, LIVES IN YOU…” ROMANS 8:11
