Sermons concerning the resurrection of Christ

Testimony, the empty tomb, the remarkable change in the disciples … the New Testament provides fact-based evidence that Jesus rose from the dead. In this message, Alistair Begg encourages us to look carefully at this central Christian truth and stresses the need to trust in Christ for our salvation. Through his word, Jesus calls everyone to believe in the gospel, and those who believe are called to share his story with a broken world.

Christians today celebrate Easter Sunday with joy, knowing that the Lord Jesus was resurrected, but those who witnessed the event were not immediately sure what happened. The description they provided was based mostly on evidence, not emotion, and we need to use both faith and reason to understand it. Using the apostle John's account of the resurrection, Alistair Begg encourages us to carefully examine the biblical records and respond in faith and confirm that "He was indeed resurrected!"

The basis of all Christian faith and doctrine – and the source of all meaning in life – lies in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Alistair Begg draws these truths from an important passage in 1 Corinthians 15 and explains how the good news of the gospel must include both a dying Savior and a resurrected, living Lord. Our understanding of the resurrection of Jesus forms the basis on which we answer two important questions: Do I believe in Jesus? and do I belong to him?

The resurrection is often a stumbling block for skeptics. Sometimes we even tend to share the gospel without mentioning the return of Christ from death. However, Paul taught that if we negate Christ's resurrection and his promise of new life in him, we make our faith meaningless. Alistair Begg traces a line through scripture affirming the truth and centrality of the resurrection. What we believe about the future will directly affect our behavior in the present.
