He is alive! It is all true!

Through the Spirit of holiness (he) was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.
(Rom 1:4 NIV)

 

What is Easter? It is the declaration by God that Jesus is the Son of God, he is everything he claimed to be and the death that he died was not in vain: we can have certain hope for the future and peace in the present.

Honest skeptical inquirers have repeatedly been satisfied that Jesus lived and that the historical evidence is overwhelmingly in support of his Resurrection. A person may choose to ignore or disregard the evidence but cannot deny it on intellectual grounds. The real question is not if the data are true, it is what is our response to the data?

Faith in Christ is founded on historical events – the life, death and resurrection of Jesus – and because of that “I am not ashamed, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day.”  (2Ti 1:12 NIV)
