The Resurrection of Christ

He is risen copy

Commentary By:  Gordon King

Jesus Christ, crucified by people who He died to save.  Sounds a little ironic doesn’t it?  God dying on the cross, killed by the very people whom He came to save.  Yet that’s just what happened.  Jesus came into this world not to condemn the world, but to save it!

Yes, even those who hated Him and condemned Him, Jesus came to save.  All who believe upon the name of the Lord Jesus shall be saved.

Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, crucified, died, and buried in a tomb.  His body left encapsulated in a tomb for three days which was sealed by an enormous stone and guarded by Roman soldiers. 

Matthew 27:62-66

‘ “On the next day, which followed the Day of Preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees gathered together to Pilate, 63 saying, “Sir, we remember, while He was still alive, how that deceiver said, ‘After three days I will rise.’ 64 Therefore command that the tomb be made secure until the third day, lest His disciples come by night and steal Him away, and say to the people, ‘He has risen from the dead.’ So the last deception will be worse than the first.”

65 Pilate said to them, “You have a guard; go your way, make it as secure as you know how.” 66 So they went and made the tomb secure, sealing the stone and setting the guard.’

The chief priests and Pharisees made sure that the tomb was secure, so that it would be most difficult for anyone to open it.  They also had it guarded with Roman Centurion soldiers.  However, an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and rolled away the stone.  When the soldiers saw the angel they fell from fear as dead men.  Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went inside the tomb.  The angel told them to look and see for themselves that the Lord has risen.

Matthew 28:6-10

‘ “He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”  So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word.  And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, “Rejoice!” So they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell My brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me.” ‘

The eleven disciples went to Galilee and met Jesus.  He gave them the great commission, to make disciples of all nations. 

Matthew 28:16-20

‘Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.’

Jesus also told them that He is with them, even to the end to the age.  What did He mean by “the end of the age?” 

This was the beginning of the “church age.”  What Jesus is saying is that He is with us until He returns for us, at the end of the church age. 

Jesus Christ, crucified on the cross, buried for three days, rising from the dead, ascending into heaven to sit at the right hand of our Father.  This is of the utmost significance for all believers in Jesus Christ!  For if He did not rise from the dead as He said that He would, then He is not God!  But He did rise from the dead!  Not only did He rise from the dead, but He ascended into heaven!

God Almighty, the Alpha and the Omega!  His words are true, His prophecies are true.  Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and salvation is yours!  Eternal life, a new body, peace, comfort, and safety forever! 

God bless my friends!
