Resurrection

1 Corinthians 15:4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures…

Raised egeiro” in the Greek

to arouse from sleep, to awake, to arouse from the sleep of death, to recall the dead to life 

Literally, Jesus was raised out of, from among the dead. 

1 Corinthians 15:13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised…

Resurrectionanastasis” in the Greek

raising up, rising (e.g. from a seat); a rising from the dead; that of Christ; that of all men at the end of this present age. 

The resurrection of Jesus is the power of God. The resurrection validates and authenticates Christ’s death on the cross which is the payment for sin. It proved Jesus was deity. 

Without the Jesus’ resurrection, there is no hope for our bodies. He is the first of the resurrection. He is the promise our resurrection. The result of sin is bodily death. As believers in Christ, our soul and spirit are separated from the body at the point of physical death. The promise of the resurrection is the reconnection of our body, soul, and spirit into a glorified body. The resurrection is the power over death. Without the resurrection, our faith is pointless. See 1 Corinthians 15.

Hebrews 7:25 Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. 

Because of Jesus’ resurrection and ascension into Heaven, He is alive in bodily form at the right hand of the Father. It is there, Jesus represents believers on their behalf to the Father. 

Acts 17:31 because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.”

God the Father will judge the world through His Son Jesus. Based on what, the fact of the resurrection.
