Wording of Tract:
It is a recorded fact of history that Jesus Christ was crucified and His body carefully buried in a tomb. It is also an established fact that He rose from the dead. His tomb was found empty after three days. He was then seen alive by over five hundred different people in different places .
Many did not want this to be true. It was deeply embarrassing to them and their pre-conceived ideas about Jesus. They thought He was an impostor, a blasphemer because He claimed to be the Son of God. So they got Him crucified, thinking that they would get rid of Him.
But they hadn’t! When word of His resurrection began to spread, they tried to squash it, telling lies, threatening and punishing those who believed it but it was all in vain. The evidence was too strong
to refute. The implications were too great to ignore - it meant they had been wrong, and that Jesus was in fact the Son of God . Actually, many of His enemies then become His followers.
Twenty centuries have not changed the evidence
Twenty centuries have not changed the evidence. It stands as irrefutable as ever. The implications too are the same. Jesus of Nazareth was the Son of God, who came into the world as the Bible says, “to save sinners” . That was why He died, then rose again, It really is true.
“Christ died for our sins, … He was buried, … He
rose again the third day according to the
Scriptures: … and He was seen …”
(1 Corinthians 15.3-5)
BUT DOES ALL THIS REALLY MATTER TO ME?
The resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ does matter immensely to you.
Firstly, if you accept Him, it is the guarantee of your present and eternal salvation from sin. By raising Jesus Christ from the dead, God showed that He had accepted that sacrifice on the cross as the penalty due for sin. Now you also must accept Him - take the Lord Jesus to be your own personal Saviour .
But secondly, if you reject Him, it is the guarantee that you will face judgment for your sin. The Bible declares that on an appointed day God will judge the world in righteousness. The assurance that this will happen is that God raised Jesus from the dead. Because of this God “now commands all everywhere to repent” .
God really wants to save you and not to judge you, but the choice is yours.
Come now and trust the Lord Jesus Christ, risen from the dead and alive today. Avoid the prospect of future judgment. Rather enjoy the assurance of present forgiveness and peace with God.
“He is able also to save them
to the uttermost that come to God by Him,
seeing He ever lives”
