IMPORTANCE OF THE RESURRECTION

I COR. 15:14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

THE RESURRECTION :
I. IS A VITAL PART OF THE SAVING GOSPEL.
A. “ By which ye are saved.” ( 1 Cor. 15:2)
B. “ thou shall be saved.” (Rom. 10:8,9)
II. WAS THE ONLY SIGN GIVEN BY THE LORD TO ESTABLISH HIS DEITY.
A. Matt. 12:39,40 “the sign of the prophet Jonah”
B. Rom. 1:3,4 “ by the power of the Resurrection”
III. WAS PLAINLY TOLD IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.
A. Psa. 16:9,10 “ Thou wilt not leave my soul in hell “
B. Illustration of Jonah.
IV. WAS OFTEN SPOKEN OF BY JESUS.
A. Mt. 20:18,19 “ And the third day rise again “
B. Mt. 17:9 “ until the son of man be risen again from the dead “
C. Lu. 9:22 “ be slain and raised again the third day”
D. Jn. 10:17,18 “ I lay down my life that I might take it up again”
V. WAS PROCLAIMED BY BIBLE PREACHERS CONTINUALLY.

VI. IS THE ESSENTIAL BASE TO THE OTHER GREAT DOCTRINES OF THE BIBLE.
A. Essential to the doctrine of Justification. (Rom. 4:3,22,24,25)
B. Essential to the doctrine of Intercession. (Heb.7:23,25)
C. Essential to the doctrine of the 2nd Coming. (Jn.14:3)
D. Essential to the doctrine of the Millenium. (Acts 2:30)
E. Essential to the doctrine of Glorification. (! Cor. 15:7)
VII. IS ILLUSTRATED IN THE WATER BAPTISM.
A. Rom 6:4,5 “ like as Christ was raised up from the dead “
B. Col. 2:12,13 “buried with Him in baptism, wherein ye are also risen with Him through faith”
