The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the concrete in the foundation of the Christian faith.
Reasons to believe Jesus really did rise from the dead:
#1 JESUS OWN PREDICTIONS OF HIS DEATH AND RESURRECTION Luke 9:22
#2 THE PUBLIC CRUCIFIXION John 19:32-34
#3 THE EYE WITNESS TESTIMONIES 1 Corinthians 15:6
#4 THE EMPTY TOMB Mark 16:1
#5 THE TRANSFORMED LIVES OF THE DISCIPLES Matthew 26:56, Acts 3:15, Acts 4:1-2
#6 THE BIRTH OF THE CHURCH Acts 2:40-41
#7 THE TRANSFORMED LIVES OF CHRIST FOLLOWERS TODAY
