Podcast 80: Resurrection People (Sean Finnegan)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The best chapter on resurrection in the bible is 1 Corinthians 15. In it, the Apostle Paul masterfully lays out the Christian position on resurrection while overcoming common objections in the culture. As it turns out, people living in Corinth thought the idea of resurrection seemed real bizarre.  Looking at tombstone inscriptions, Plato’s Phaedo, and Celsus’ criticism of Christianity, we can get a sense for why the Corinthians balked at resurrection.  However, there’s no way around it; if we get rid of our belief in resurrection, then Jesus himself is not raised and our faith is worthless.  But, since Jesus is risen, we know that resurrection is possible and it awaits God’s people on the last day.

    .I have a question where do we get the authority to celebrate the resurrection
    from or in the scriptures? I know the communion his death till he comes is there Acts 20:7 and other places in the gospel.Speak where the Bible speaks, and remain silent where it is silent.
