What Does Jesus’ Resurrection Prove?

1) It proves His identity.

Jesus was “declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead…” (Romans 1:4).

2) It proves His integrity.

Jesus repeatedly predicted His resurrection (Matthew 12:40; 16:21; 17:22-23; 20:18-19; 26:32). If He had not been risen, could He be trusted?

3) It proves the validity of Old Testament prophecy.

Centuries beforehand, God predicted through the prophets He would raise Jesus (Psalm 16:10; Luke 24:44-46).

4) It proves the certainty of the coming Judgment.

God “has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead” (Acts 17:31, emphasis added).

God said He would raise Jesus, then He did.

So when God says Jesus will judge the world, shouldn’t we believe it—and prepare?
