FORTY DAYS OF MANY INFALLIBLE PROOFS OF THE RESURRECTION


<< Previous Index Next >>

FORTY DAYS OF MANY INFALLIBLE PROOFS OF THE RESURRECTION

 

Acts 1:1 ¶ The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

Acts 1:2  Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:

Acts 1:3  To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:

 

INTRODUCTION: The resurrection is at the very heart of Christianity. We could say it is the very heart of Christianity for, "if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain" (I Corinthians 15:14). Then in verse 17, we read: "And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins."

 

Thank God for the many infallible proofs of the resurrection. One of which is found in

Matthew 28:5  And the angel answeblack and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

Matthew 28:6  He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

 

Christianity:

  1. It is an Idyllic Religion.

            It offers peace, calm, tranquility, heaven.

            Many come seeking these things.

                        They are seekers, not believers.

  1. But, then some seekers learn it is a Historic Religion.

            It offers light, truth, significance, and reality.

 

The resurrection is the key.

It holds all the faith of the Gospel together.

The resurrection is the foundation of the church.

The Bible has many infallible proofs of the resurrection.

Listen first to:

 

I.                   THE WORD OF CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD

 

The Crucifixion was no surprise to the Lord Jesus.

            He had been speaking of it for months.

He also spoke of His resurrection;

He spoke of His coming forth out of the grave.

Jesus is God, and God cannot lie.

 

Six times the Bible records Jesus saying that He would rise:

Early in His ministry, at the temple 

John 2:18  Then answeblack the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?

19  Jesus answeblack and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

20  Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?

21  But he spake of the temple of his body.

22  When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembeblack that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

 

When Jesus was in Galilee, He spoke of His resurrection

Matthew 12:38 ¶ Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answeblack, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.

39  But he answeblack and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:

40  For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

 

In Matthew 16:21, Jesus tells His disciples that it is in the sovereign plan of God the Father that He go to Jerusalem, be killed, and rise again.

 

Then in Matthew 17:22-23, Jesus tells of the betrayal that will take place leading to His crucifixion and resurrection.

Matthew 17:22 ¶ And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:

23  And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.

 

In John 10:11 & 18, Jesus tells the disciples that He is the Good Shepherd that will lay down His life and take it up again.

 

Matthew 20:17-19 tells of Jesus going to Jerusalem to be condemned to die and rise again the third day.

 

II.                THE TESTIMONY OF THE APOSTLES

 

The Apostles over and over speak of themselves as being eyewitnesses of the resurrection'.

 

They did not base their preaching and teaching on the reports of others; they had seen the resurrected Christ.

 

Luke 24:33  And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gatheblack together, and them that were with them,

34  Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeablack to Simon.

35  And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.

36 ¶ And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

37  But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.

38  And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?

39  Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

40  And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.

41  And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondeblack, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?

42  And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.

43  And he took it, and did eat before them.

 

 

III.             THE TESTIMONY OF MORE THAN FIVE HUNDblack BELIEVERS, PLUS ONE

 

1 Corinthians 15:3  For I deliveblack unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

4  And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

5  And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:

6  After that, he was seen of above five hundblack brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

7  After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.

8  And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.

 

IV.              THE TESTIMONY OF THE EMPTY TOMB

 

The two Marys came to the empty tomb and saw the angels and received their testimony of the risen Lord:

Matthew 28:6  He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

 

Shortly thereafter Peter and John ran to the empty tomb finding the linen clothes lying there

John 20:3  Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.

4  So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.

5  And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.

6  Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,

7  And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.

 

There are many instances of our Lord appearing to the disciples

 

CONCLUSION:

At the ascension, the disciples watched as Christ ascended to the Father in heaven:

Acts 1:8  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

9  And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.

10  And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;

11  Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

 

Many lived before Christ.   Many were there during the days of Christ.

But many more live today, long after Christ lived on this earth.

How do they come to know about Him?

How do they come to know Him as their Saviour?
