"This is My Beloved Son: Hear Him!"

 

 

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ: Matthew 28

1 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.
3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow.
4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
5 The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.
6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.
7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.' Now I have told you."
8 So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
9 Suddenly Jesus met them. "Greetings," he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him.
10 Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me."
 

Matthew 28

  • Jesus Christ submitted to God’s will thus fulfilling His role as Messiah.

  • An Angel was sent to open the tomb and proclaim  that He was risen from the dead.

  • Jesus rose from the dead – death could not hold him because he was the sinless Son of God.

  • The women saw the empty tomb then hurried to tell Jesus' disciples the good news, just as they were commended by the Angel.

 

  Although Jesus was killed by wicked hands, the grave could not hold Him. Jesus was the One towards whom all history moved forward, the true Passover Lamb, the 2nd Adam, the pinnacle of God's creation

On the third day, Jesus rose from the dead, to become the first fruits of them that sleep. Having appeared alive to His Disciples and proved the reality of His resurrection by “many infallible proofs,” He instructed them on how they should continue the work that He had commenced.

To all true Christians, one of the most certain facts of history is the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  This fact, the growth of Christianity stemming from it, and the assurance of a risen Christ who has said that He will return, places us in the position where we have to consider our own personal responsibility to Him.  Through baptism, we can voluntarily associate ourselves with the risen Christ.  By a consecrated life, those baptised reveal that they understand “the power of His resurrection.”
