Alive

Jesus’ resurrection from the dead is the single event upon which Christianity rises or falls.

Alive: Why the Resurrection Matters To You

Why is Easter such a big deal? Jesus’ resurrection from the dead is the single event upon which Christianity rises or falls. This study of the resurrection begins by surveying the concept of resurrection from the dead from its earliest mentions in the Old Testament through Jesus' and the apostles’ teachings about resurrection. It looks forward to our own resurrection as promised in the Bible.

During this study, you will:
  • Compare the accounts in each of the four gospels to examine in detail what took place that Easter morning.
  • Explore alternate explanations of the resurrection posed by skeptics.
  • Discuss the evidence of the physical resurrection which underlie our belief in Christ's resurrection.
  • Explore the theological and practical implications of the resurrection that lead to belief in Christ as our Savior.
  • Considers New Testament teachings about your own resurrection on the Last Day.
  • Week 1: The Promise of Resurrection from the Dead
  • Week 2: The Gospel Accounts of Christ’s Resurrection
  • Week 3: Convincing Proofs of Christ’s Bodily Resurrection
  • Week 4: The Present‐Day Significance of Christ’s Resurrection
  • Week 5: The Christian Hope of Resurrection at the Last Day
