The Risen Christ

The resurrection of Christ Jesus has been commemorated by the Christian world for many centuries. That a man could, by his spiritual understanding, raise his own body from the grave, has seemed miraculous to the human mind, and at the time of this event there was great wonderment and rejoicing among the people. His own disciples, having misunderstood his sayings regarding the coming experience, were overjoyed at his reappearing. Some of them, saddened by Jesus' crucifixion, had returned to their former occupations; but the momentous event awakened them to the significance of his words and of the prophecies made concerning him in the Scriptures.

The proofs which have been presented of Jesus' resurrection afford convincing evidence of the fact. The four Gospels differ only in minor details in their recording of it. Paul was so convinced of the fact that the resurrection took place that he said to the Corinthian brethren, "But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: and if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain."
