The Resurrection of Jesus Christ

Sproul begins with the philosopher Immanuel Kant (1724-1804), who argued that we have to believe as if God exists because without that idea, morality, ethics, and justice would be non-existent and it would lead to meaningless.  The problem with that was that argument did not hold up long, for Frederick Nietzsche, John Paul Sarte, and Albert Camus came along later and argued that that argument of Kant’s was not being honest.

The apostle Paul argued in a similar way; that if there was no resurrection, then life is meaningless.

Then Sproul works through Biblical texts such as:

1 Corinthians 15:12-19

1 Corinthians 15:1-11

Acts 17:28-31

About Ken Temple

I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I am a sinner who has been saved by the grace of God alone (Ephesians 2:8-9), through faith alone (Galatians 2:16; Romans 3:28; 4:1-16), in Christ alone (John 14:6). But a true faith does not stay alone, it should result in change, fruit, good works, and deeper levels of repentance and hatred of my own sins of selfishness and pride. I am not better than you! I still make mistakes and sin, but the Lord is working on me, conforming me to His character. (Romans 8:28-29; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18) When I do sin, I hate the sin as it is an affront to God, and seek His forgiveness in repentance. (Mark 1:15; 2 Corinthians 7:7-10; Colossians 3:5-16 ) Praise God for His love for sinners (Romans 5:8), shown by the voluntary coming of Christ and His freely laying down His life for us (John 10:18), becoming flesh/human (John 1:1-5; 1:14; Philippians 2:5-8), dying for sins of people from all nations, tribes, and cultures (Revelation 5:9), on the cross, in history, rising from the dead (Romans 10:9-10; Matthew 28, Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24; John 20-21; 1 Corinthians chapter 15). His resurrection from the dead proved that Jesus is the Messiah, the eternal Son of God, the word of God from eternity past; and that He was all the gospels say He was and that He is truth and the life and the way to salvation. (John 14:6)

1 Response to The Resurrection of Jesus Christ

  1. θ says:

    Paul confirmed that it is not the bloods nor the death of Jesus that could atone the sins. Hence, the faith in crucifixion has nothing to do with redeeming the sins. It is not vicarious atonement that purged the sin. It is not death that destroys sins, but the re-life.
    1Cor 15:17
    And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
