Christ has Risen… or has he?

“He is not here, but He has risen. … the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.” (Luke 24:6-7, NAS)

“He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead…” (Matthew 28:6-7, NAS)

How is it possible that Jesus Christ who died on Good Friday could be alive again on Easter Sunday? Is there evidence to prove the claim of Christ’s resurrection? Listen to this Easter Sunday message entitled “This Changes Everything!” based on John 20:1-18 by Rev Dr Ian Buntain of Grace Baptist Church, Singapore, to hear the compelling evidence (watch it below).

Why is Good Friday… good?

Why is Good Friday considered “good”?
        For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him. And He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; “for by His wounds you were healed.” For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

Christ Has Risen – Death Has No Sting!

“For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4, NIV)

“He is not here; he has risen! … The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.” (Luke 24:6-7, NIV)

“Death has been swallowed up in victory.
Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:54-57, NIV)
