The Resurrection of Jesus-Why it Matters

As with many other core doctrines of Historical Orthodox Christianity, the Doctrine of the Resurrection is under assault from many quarters. Obviously, atheists and humanists discount the account of the Resurrection just like they discount all other Biblical accounts of anything. We are not surprised by their disbelief at all, as it makes perfect sense from their worldview. Surprisingly, and more disturbingly, is the assault on the account of the Resurrection coming from supposedly “Christian” denominations and scholars. Sadly, even among the so-called Christian Church, the Resurrection is dismissed as not historically accurate, or as simply not key or important to core doctrines. Here are a couple of examples of so-called Christian theologians who promote a far less than literal account of the Resurrection.

It will not start off as wine

One of my greatest challenges is that I like to be in the know. I love to plan and to know exactly the process involved in anything I do. I like to know why, how, what and when. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It is good to be informed and aware of what is going on around us. However, many times in my life I have found myself getting frustrated with God for not letting me know the nitty gritty of everything. So when I came across this particular story which I will be sharing, it sounded good but also convicting because the people involved operated on a very high level of trust and faith.

An important theme in Presuppositional apologetics is the need to evaluate things from a Christian worldview that is informed by God’s revelation.

I believe something similar to that is also helpful in evaluating what’s going on in the New Testament in light of Old Testament anticipation of prophecies.

In this post we will look at three anticipation of Jesus and the Gospel from the book of Ezekiel.

I really enjoyed this booklet that is a part of the Basics of the Faith series printed by Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing.  This is the sixth booklet that I read from the series and I read it along with my wife as our couple’s devotional reading together.  I was blessed by this beyond my expectation in comparison to the other booklets in the series I have read thus far.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How did Jesus respond when questioned by the high priest?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

He did not answer directly.

But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest said to Him, “I adjure You by the living God, that You tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God.” 64 Jesus *said to him, “You have said it yourself; nevertheless I tell you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.”” (Matthew 26:63-64)

And they all said, “Are You the Son of God, then?” And He said to them, “Yes, I am.”” (Luke 22:70)

He answered directly by saying, “I am.”

And Jesus said, “I am; and you shall see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.”” (Mark 14:62)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:
