I Corinthians 15:12-20
If Jesus Christ has not been raised from the dead then our biggest problem has still not been taken care of which is our sin problem. If our sin problem has not been taken care of then there is no way that you can know God or have a relationship with God. But, because He does live, we no longer have to fear death, we can have victory over sin and know this earthly journey is a momentary journey that leads to a destination of eternal fellowship with a Lord and Savior who is alive. We don't have to live in a world without Easter.
"Why didn't the Jewish leaders who hated Jesus and were His most bitter enemies expose the tomb? Why didn't the Roman soldiers expose the gravesite? Why didn't contemporary Roman or Jewish historians write about His tomb? Can I tell you why? Because, they all unanimously agreed the tomb was empty." --Dr. Merritt
