Did Christ Really Rise from the Dead? 4 Confirmations That We Serve a Risen Lord
Easter is quickly approaching and many of us are turning our thoughts toward the Resurrection of Christ.
Easter is a time to rejoice in such a central tenet of the Christian faith. Easter is also a good time to ponder the truth of Christianity more deeply, and specifically look at the evidence for Christ's Resurrection.
It is so important as a Christian to be assured of the truth of the Resurrection because as the Apostle Paul states, “If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith” (I Corinthians 15:13-14).
To that end, here are four pieces of evidence to show that Christ truly did rise from the dead and we have much to rejoice about this Easter.
