1 Peter 1:21

 to the Resurrection 

  • When Peter and the Apostles first preached the Gospel, 3,000 Jews believed and were baptized. If Jesus had not risen from the dead, it would have been immediately known and the message would have been rejected, but instead day after day more Jews believed and were baptized (Acts 2:37-47, 4:4).

  • In the name of Jesus people continued to be healed of their afflictions (Acts 4:13-16, 4:33, and the rest of Acts).

  • The High Priest did not deny the Apostles claim of Jesus' resurrection (Acts 5:30-32).

 Other Resurrections & Facts 
 About the Resurrection 

  • Many of the Saints in the O.T. rose from the dead after Jesus rose from the dead (Matthew 27:50-53)

  • God is the God of the living, not the dead (Luke 20:37-38)

  • It is because of the resurrection that we are able to be born-again (1 Peter 1:3) and it is also our assurance of an inheritance in heaven that will last forever (1 Peter 1:4).

  • God the Father raised Jesus from the dead and gave Him glory, so that our faith and hope will not be in men, but in God (1 Peter 1:21).

3. It is through the resurrection of Jesus Christ that have God’s assurance that if we come to Him through the blood of His Son we will gain a clear conscience before God (1 Peter 3:21).

Acts 2:24-32 "And God raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power. For David said of Him, ‘I was always beholding the Lord in my presence; for he is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken. Therefore my heart was glad and my tongue exulted; moreover my flesh also will abide in hope; because You will not abandon My soul to hades, nor allow Your Holy One to undergo decay. You have made known to me the ways of life, You will make Me full of gladness with Your presence.’ Brethren, I may confidently say to you regarding the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. And so, because he was a prophet, and knew that God had sworn to him with an oath to seat one of his descendants upon his throne, he looked ahead and spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that He was neither abandoned to Hades, nor did His flesh suffer decay. This Jesus God raised up again, to which we are all witnesses." (Psalm 16:8-11, Acts 13:35)
