Getting Right to the Point!
The Resurrection of Jesus is a Fact – of Faith!
The very existence of the true Christian religion depends upon the bodily resurrection of Christ. This miracle, more that all others, proves that Christ was and is God, and that His Father accepted His Passion and death as full payment for the sins of all people. Without the physical coming back to life of the once-dead corpse of the historical person known as Jesus of Nazareth, all the rest of the claims of the Christian Church are useless, foolish, and even cruel.
But the resurrection of Jesus Christ is a fact. No other event of ancient times is so well attested. The actual eyewitnesses, pagan and Jewish, as well as Christian, are more numerous and more well regarded than for any other happening since Creation!
Still, something so amazing and world-changing cannot be believed except by faith, given through the Bible by the grace of God. Those with this faith will rise again to eternal bliss. Those who reject this miracle will rise also – to hell forever. Believe it! And that's the point!
