Just As He Said
Most apologetic defenses of Jesus' resurrection set out to prove through evidence that it actually happened. Historical facts, eye witness accounts from the gospels and the like are compiled to corroborate Jesus’ bodily resurrection from the grave. They usually begin with the question, what proof do we have of the resurrection?
I would like to take a different approach this resurrection Sunday by asking a different question. Instead of looking for proof of the resurrection, we need to ask and answer the question, what does the resurrection itself prove? What is its fruit? What has it accomplished? What does it mean?
