All of the significant religions in the world have an opinion about Jesus Christ. Some call Him a prophet, and some a good man. But Jesus Himself said that He is more than a good man, and a prophet. Jesus told us, “no one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).
So we must all answer the question: Is Jesus Christ really who He claimed to be?
Jesus’ resurrection from the dead is one of His greatest proofs.
The Bible records nine occasions of Jesus’ appearance after His resurrection. Paul writes,
“He was seen by Cephas (Peter), then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me also, as one born out of due time” (1 Corinthians 15:5-8).
As Paul states, he writes among the current witnesses of Christ’s resurrection. And we know from history, the Apostles’ testimony to the resurrection of Jesus was tested under torture, and for all but John, with their lives.
The truth we know in our hearts. The words and example of love and truth left by Jesus Christ and His followers are their greatest evidence. So we can be confident that Jesus Christ is everything He claimed to be, and when we put our trust in Him, our sins will be forgiven.
