Resurrection of Jesus Christ

Resurrection of Jesus Christ -

After Jesus was crucified, Joseph of Arimathea had Christ's body placed in his own tomb. A large stone covered the entrance and soldiers guarded the sealed tomb. On the third day, a Sunday, several women (Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, Joanna and Salome are all mentioned in the gospel accounts) went to the tomb at dawn to anoint the body of Jesus.

A violent earthquake took place as an angel from heaven rolled back the stone. The guards shook in fear as the angel, dressed in bright white, sat upon the stone. The angel announced to the women that Jesus who was crucified was no longer in the tomb, "He is risen, just as he said." Then he instructed the women to inspect the tomb and see for themselves. Next he told them to go inform the disciples.

With a mixture of fear and joy they ran to obey the angel's command, but suddenly Jesus met them on their way. They fell at his feet and worshiped him. Jesus then said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee. There they will see me."

When the guards reported what had happened to the chief priests, they bribed the soldiers with a large sum of money, telling them to lie and say that the disciples had stolen the body in the night.

After his resurrection, Jesus appeared to the women near the tomb and later at least twice to the disciples while they were gathered at a house in prayer. He visited two of the disciples on the road to Emmaus and he also appeared at the Sea of Galilee while several of the disciples were fishing.

Points of Interest from the Resurrection of Jesus Christ Story:

• There are at least 12 different appearances of Christ in the resurrection accounts, beginning with Mary and ending with Paul. They were physical, tangible experiences with Christ eating, speaking and allowing himself to be touched.

• Jesus' resurrected body was different from his physical body. It was no longer subject to the same laws of nature. He could transcend locked doors, and yet he could still be touched and he could eat.

• Before Jesus ascended into heaven he gave the Great Commission, telling his followers to go and make disciples of all nations.

• The stone was not rolled away from the tomb so Jesus could get out. He was able to walk through walls (John 20:19) in his resurrected body. The stone was rolled away so that everyone could see that he was risen.

Question for Reflection About the Resurrection of Jesus Christ::

When Jesus appeared to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, they didn't recognize him (Luke 24:13-33). They even talked in great length about Jesus, but they didn't know they were in his very presence. Has Jesus, the resurrected Savior visited you, but you didn't recognize him?

    Interesting story:

    -- It's impossible to verify something taking place along time ago in a place far away.

    -- Modern science fiction and fantasy literature has many better stories.

    Skepticism is endemic in a world where people believe science has all the answers.
    Where affluence feeds the mind & body, that niggling emptiness can be cured with medication. No, God is not quantifiable, His works are great yet unclaimed by Him.
    I have a background in science, know skepticism well..sometimes He finds you when you were not looking, each journey different yet nevertheless tangible in so many ways.
    I do not challenge your stance, I suggest you similarly respect those who celebrate this day.

    There have been 50 crucified saviors prior to Jesus with the exact same life story. It is not a matter of skepticism, it is a matter of plagiarism. Christianity is not unique or original in any way. Many has created over 4700 gods over the history of time on this planet. Not one of them has been proven to exist.

    Skepticism is not part of science, questioning is. That is the part that is missing in religion and faith and belief.

    Science may never explain everything, but pure science does not close the door on possibilities. Contemporary research is still looking at the existence of the soul and philosophers (medicine began in philosophy) similarly consider the mind, body & soul.

    Sorry, but medicine first began when man first injured himself. That was not philosophy at all, but survival. Philosophy came later.

    I think you are really stretching it to say it is research that is looking for the existence of a soul.
  • Apache bricklyn 2012/04/11 09:56:04
    Google it. Scientists have open minds. No hypothesis arbitrarily discarded until proven otherwise. And no research has disproven God.

    Medicine as it is known today, hypoctatic oath etc did begin in philosophy.
    But you are right, the profession of medicine was not needed for people to attempt to heal themselves or others.
  • bricklyn Apache 2012/04/14 07:14:51
    No research has proven god. The proof is always on those who make the claim of something that exists. If you were educated you would know how proof and evidence is applied.

    Medicine started long befor the hypocratic oath. It started when humans first started to injury themselves and their clan start to try and help them. It was not organized medicine but it was where it began. It was a cultural thing just like that native tribes in N. America and Africa with herbs and spiritual influences.

    Did you even read my comment before replying? I referred to healing before it medicine became a profession.

    I have conducted numerous research projects. 'proof' is a term rarely used except by laymen. Depending on the hypothesis generally looking for a correlation and/or causal effect. Replication of studies using different populations, modalities & instruments also is required to add to the cogency of a theory. The onus of 'proof' is not on those positing or believing in a particular phenomenon...research interests are vast and all inclusive...yes, God has been the subject of much research as has the soul. To help you google one example...near death experiences have been researched re the existence of the soul. Just one of many areas. I generally don't extrapolate from such meager evidence as the construction of a response however query what qualifications you profess to have. High school really doesn't count.

    Name one other that gave his or her life for your sins?

    The resurrection of Jesus is pure myth. Jesus was his own Christ, an ancient Jew with human parents. Our Savior is in our brains. Jesus was an Orthodox Rabbi who has taught Judaism like Rabbi Hillel.

    Sorry, but I have my own brains and I think for myself. I am not a clone of anyone else.
