Within 25 years of the amazing events that changed history, the Apostle Paul wrote: “For what I received I also passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.” (1 Corinthians 15 v 3-6)
What happened to Jesus on Good Friday in his being put to death on a Roman cross was all according to God’s plan, revealed through his prophets, and it had a great purpose. It was the death that brings hope to all who trust and follow Jesus because he died in our place under God’s judgement that we deserve so that we can be accepted and forgiven by God. The truth of this was confirmed by God when, as he had also said through his prophets, Jesus was raised from the dead on the Sunday morning, showing his death had won the great victory over death.
Jesus is alive today to share his victory, giving the life of God to all who recognise that they have lived rejecting God, deserving his judgement, and so come to Jesus to receive him as their Lord and Saviour. No wonder Christians remember and celebrate these things, which are still as true today nearly 2,000 years after they took place as they were when Paul wrote about them. You are welcome to join with us as we celebrate Easter this year.
