Why Is The Resurrection Significant?
By Stanley T. Crawford

Luke 24:1 12 describes the first Easter. It wasn't called Easter by the men and women of that time that is what it has come to be known as today.

Women had come to the tomb in order to put spices on the body of Jesus Christ; this was a custom of that day. The tomb had been guarded in order to prevent the theft of Jesus Christ's body (Matthew 27:62 66). Yet even with all of the precautions Jesus Christ's body was gone (Luke 24:3)

Two men in shining garments, angels, were in the tomb. These angels told them that Jesus had risen from the dead. The angels reminded the women about the things that Jesus had said about his death and resurrection (Luke 24:7)

Next, the women went and told others what they had seen. When the women told the others they didn't believe that Jesus had risen from the dead (Luke 24:11). On the other had, Peter went to see for himself.

Why was Jesus Christ's resurrection significant? It is readily summed up below:

I Corinthians 15: 20 22

20 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.
21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.

These verses are very clear and need very little explanation. It is through Christ's death and resurrection that we are able to receive eternal life through belief in Jesus Christ (John 3:16)

In our present day world, we have people who:

1 Like the women who believed, rejoice and tell others.
2 Like the people in the city, refuse to believe.
3 Like Peter, go to see for their selves (studying the bible, going to church, watching people who are Christians).

Which of these people best describes you?
