We ask the question as sung by Peggy Lee, “Is This All There Is?”  We want to believe that there is more to life than this span of time.  We have made up lies to deceive ourselves into believing in a resurrection.  Such as: Winter turns into Spring, all dead in the winter and than back to life in Spring. Not so, for if the vegetation was really dead it would never  come to life.   A beautiful butterfly comes to life from a cocoon like a resurrection from the dead.  Not true, for if you really crushed (killed) that cocoon, there would never come forth a butterfly.
What can substantiate our wishful thinking for life after death?  SOMEONE WHO CAME BACK FROM THE DEAD.
The only one that I know that has done that is JESUS CHRIST.

Allow me to give you some Biblical evidence for His resurrection:

  1. Fulfilled Prophecy… Luke 24: 44-47   The Old Testament predicted that the Messiah would come, suffer, die and then rise from the dead.
  2. Physical Evidence… Luke 24: 36-39   Jesus appeared to the disciple and allowed them to touch Him.
  3. Eye Witness Testimony… Mary Magdalene  John 20:16-18; Other women Matthew 28:5-10; Two followers on the Road to Emmaus Luke 24: 33-35; Simon Peter Luke 24:34; Disciples (ten) without Thomas John 20:19-20; Thomas present a week later John 20:26-28; Sea of Galilee John 21:7-14; Mount of Olives (Ascension) Mark 16:19-20; James 1Corinthians 15:7; Paul Acts 9:4-6; More than 500 Brethren I Corinthians 15:6  These people all lived and died for a Risen Jesus not for a corpse.

Roger Chambers said, “Faith is not a belief in the irrational; it is belief in the invisible.”

“We live by faith, not by sight.”  2 Corinthians 5:7  Our faith is based on the testimony of others. Faith comes from trust in the Word of God.  John 20:31 “But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.”

How do you know that Jesus rose from the dead, that He is alive?
