“If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”
But what if . . . ?
A big claim vindicated
Jesus told His apostles He would rise from the dead. It didn’t sink in. After reports began coming in that He was alive, the apostles would not believe it. But later, when confronted with such overwhelming evidence they could not deny, they then believed.
Another big claim (awaiting vindication)
Jesus spoke of another resurrection—of faithful believers (John 5:28-29; 6:40; 11:25-26). The Scriptures boldly claim that the saved will be dramatically changed into glorious beings far more wonderful than we could possibly imagine (1 Corinthians 15:51-57; 1 John 3:2-3).
“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory . . .” (Philippians 3:20-21a).
Too good to be true?
