The Resurrection, Apr 4, 2010

1 Cor. 15:1-32

3 reasons why the ressurection had to happen:
1. Jesus must rise for His own account (Matt. 12:39-40; John 2:19; Matt. 27:62-66)

2. It was necessary for our account (Rom. 4:25)

3. It was necessary to assure us of our resurrection of our own body

– to know Him and the power of His resurrection
John 3:1-8; 12:24; 2 Cor. 5:17
