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?
