The centrality of the resurrection of Jesus Christ
Synopsis
Jesus Christ’s resurrection represents a demonstration of the power of God, the confirmation of the divinity of Jesus Christ and the grounds of hope for Christian believers.
Jesus Christ’s resurrection was a demonstration of God’s power
The power of God the Father
(NASB95) — 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might 20 which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,

(NASB95) — 29 But Jesus answered and said to them, “You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures nor the power of God. 30 “For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. 31 “But regarding the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was spoken to you by God: 32 ‘I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.”
(NASB95) — 24 “But God raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power.
(NASB95) — 15 but put to death the Prince of life, the one whom God raised from the dead, a fact to which we are witnesses.
(NASB95) — 40 “God raised Him up on the third day and granted that He become visible,
(NASB95) — 29 “When they had carried out all that was written concerning Him, they took Him down from the cross and laid Him in a tomb. 30 “But God raised Him from the dead;
(NASB95) — 1 Paul, an apostle (not sent from men nor through the agency of man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised Him from the dead),
(NASB95) — 12 having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.
As the basis of faith
The power of the Holy Spirit
; ;
(NASB95) — 4 who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord,
(NASB95) — 16 By common confession, great is the mystery of godliness: He who was revealed in the flesh, Was vindicated in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Proclaimed among the nations, Believed on in the world, Taken up in glory.
(NASB95) — 18 For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;
The resurrection confirmed Jesus Christ as the Son of God
John calls Jesus Christ’s miracles “signs” (see also ; ) and his resurrection is the climax, confirming his identity beyond all doubt;
(NASB95) — 30 Therefore many other signs Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.
(NASB95) — 4 who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord,
See also ;
(NASB95) — 7 “I will surely tell of the decree of the Lord: He said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.
(NASB95) — 33 that God has fulfilled this promise to our children in that He raised up Jesus, as it is also written in the second Psalm, ‘You are My Son; today i have begotten You.’
The centrality of the resurrection of Jesus Christ
As the basis of faith
(NASB95) — 14 and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain. 15 Moreover we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified against God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised.
(NASB95) — 15 but put to death the Prince of life, the one whom God raised from the dead, a fact to which we are witnesses.
(NASB95) — 33 And with great power the apostles were giving testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all.
(NASB95) — 18 And also some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers were conversing with him. Some were saying, “What would this idle babbler wish to say?” Others, “He seems to be a proclaimer of strange deities,”—because he was preaching Jesus and the resurrection.
(NASB95) — 21 other than for this one statement which I shouted out while standing among them, ‘For the resurrection of the dead I am on trial before you today.’ ”
(NASB95) — 9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;
(NASB95) — 8 Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, descendant of David, according to my gospel,
(NASB95) — 1 Therefore leaving the elementary teaching about the Christ, let us press on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, 2 of instruction about washings and laying on of hands, and the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment.
As the basis of believers’ justification
;
(NASB95) — 25 He who was delivered over because of our transgressions, and was raised because of our justification.
(NASB95) — 34 who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.
As the basis of Christian hope
;
(NASB95) — 15 having a hope in God, which these men cherish themselves, that there shall certainly be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked.
(NASB95) — 19 If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied.
As the basis of believers’ resurrection
The Law of Moses () provided for an offering of the firstfruits of crops to God. The firstfruits were the guarantee of the full harvest to come. The NT sees the resurrection of Jesus Christ as the firstfruits of the full ingathering of all God’s people when Jesus Christ comes again.
(NASB95) — 20 But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. 21 For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming,
See also ; ;
(NASB95) — 19 “After a little while the world will no longer see Me, but you will see Me; because I live, you will live also.
(NASB95) — 23 that the Christ was to suffer, and that by reason of His resurrection from the dead He would be the first to proclaim light both to the Jewish people and to the Gentiles.”
(NASB95) — 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
