Responding to skeptics of the resurrection.
1 Cor. 15:17 (NIV)
17And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.
1 Cor. 15:6 through 1 Cor. 15:8 (NIV)
6After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. 7Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, 8and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.
John 19:38 through John 19:39 (NIV)
38Later, Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of Jesus. Now Joseph was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because he feared the Jews. With Pilate?s permission, he came and took the body away. 39He was accompanied by Nicodemus, the man who earlier had visited Jesus at night. Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds.
Matt. 28:1 through Matt. 28:11 (NIV)
1After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
2There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. 4The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
5The angel said to the women, ?Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ?He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.? Now I have told you.?
8So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9Suddenly Jesus met them. ?Greetings,? he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. 10Then Jesus said to them, ?Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.?
11While the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the city and reported to the chief priests everything that had happened.
