Jesus said to her “I am the resurrection and the life the one who believes in me will live even though they die and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this? The four gospel of the bible is the canonical gospel, and among them, the gospel of John is unique from synoptic gospel although each writing of panorama about the resurrection of Jesus Christ stands on the same horizon. Lord Jesus Christ died for our sin according to the scriptures and that he was buried and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures. In keeping with scriptural prophesies and promises all these work are accomplished. The most prime element of resurrection is deliverance from sin. And it is the eternal provision of God in his son. Yet some believers do not believe in the resurrection and may have confusion. To solve all these unsettle and confusion we can go through the bible about the resurrection.
Four gospel writers had accumulated their facts and incidental figures from different individuals (Mary Magdalene, Jonna, Mary mother of James, disciples) as for their eyewitness information
1. Mathew writes as in the perspective view that he is a king.
2. Mark discerns him as a servant.
3. Luke comprehend as a person (son of man)
4. John glimpses as a son of God. So in this context, one sinless person is mandatory to be crucified to save from sin and through his resurrection only every sinner gets their right of righteousness work of religious people. A priest was impossible to make this happen and God is gracious to make this plan in Christ Jesus he make this eternal provision in his son. Some gentiles in this world are believers but they did not believe in his resurrection as such Muslim is also. But if we left the resurrection we lost the meaning of the gospel and it is futile to be in such illusion.
Nevertheless how the resurrection happen? And how many times God appears after the resurrection
First Time: Let’s see In Matthew 28: 1,2 After the Sabbath,(comma to be notified) at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the sepulcher. In this incident what happens is we should keep in mind the comma (punctuation marks) in the sentence and determine to search what all incidents happen in these two verses. After the Sabbath there is a comma (,) so that means after the next day of Sabbath. At the dawn of the first day of the week At dawn means according to Jewish people they follow the sunset to sunset as one day in their calendar which means one day is reckoned from sunset to sunset. They count from 6 pm evening time to 6 pm as a one single day. Here at dawn means *the early morning of Sunday * In Luke 24: Now open the first day of the week Very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulcher bringing the spices which they had prepared and certain other with them And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher. And they entered in and found not a body of Lord Jesus. And it came to pass as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold two men .stood by them in shining garments. These entire events happen before the first day of the week before they reached into the sepulcher. And who is the one who meets first with Jesus after his resurrection? It was Mary Magdalene (John 20: 14 ) The one who seeks Jesus passionately. the one who did not understand the meaning of the resurrection in that Nick time. She meets him when she was alone.
Second Times: When he appeared before the group of women along with Mary. This is mentioned in (Matthew 28:9) and as they went to tell his disciples, behold Jesus met them saying all hail.
Third Times: He appears with Two disciples who were going to the village called Emmaus which is threescore furlongs from Jerusalem. (Luke 24 : 13 to 16) As such in those scenarios it was revealed that they were not believing the resurrection of Christ and they were moving far away with their grief and weary but god is walking by their sight, they were helpless, they were doomed in the belief of resurrection and with that tiresome God reveal himself and he is carrying their burdens, and at last when he breaks the bread They knew his resurrection.
Fourth Times: He meets his twelve disciples. But Didymus Thomas was not present at that time. (John 20 : 24)
Fifth Times: He appears before Didymus Thomas. (John 20 : 26, 27) But Thomas has acquired such a character which seems total unbelieving. But God is faithful and he asked Thomas to thrust his finger into his print of nails thus God did not want to hesitate in believing him rather he offer to lie down in him and he exhibits he prove of resurrection to his disciples Thomas. Thus we walk by Faith. Faith is not measured by sight, the outer eyes could not see the inner and great things which are hidden as e.g. Nathanael in John 1:47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him and Saith of him behold an Israelite indeed in whom is no guile. Nathanael Saith unto him, whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered before Philip called thee. So Nathanael believes in him as the son of God and king of Israel. So this kind of belief he wants he does not want to believe as such Thomas does henceforth we believe in his resurrection. Our real foundation begins with the belief of resurrection. We never doubt in resurrection. In which all things of the earth will be upended and there is an establishment of truth .the truth overcomes and the evil faced the defeat. And the journey of victory will start. But here is a quest for your faith that only through the empty sepulcher you are believing? Either Only through the historical fact of evidence, you are believing?? Or through the gospel alone?? Suppose to be there is not any evidence would not yea believe? Resurrection is not based on earthly evidence all these earthly evidence is for the nonbeliever in support of that they will believe at present Jerusalem Jesus sepulcher and in memory of Jesus there are so many pilgrims misconception belief but these is just a materialistic and seen by our naked eyes but the righteous live by faith and faith comes by hearing the word of God And the word of God is:
* He is resurrected*
*He is risen*
True faith toward God is our worship. People won’t believe in the resurrection because they are so much arrogant and ignorant of truth they use their mind to accept the nonsense and hard Things which are not accommodated in mind rather than the simple the bible tells about the creation of God. They support the quantum theory: The universe is quantized familiar quantities such as energy, momentum, electric charge, mass, possibly even time and space are not continuous this fact is not directly observable in day to day life because the intervals between the units are incredibly small. And they hold the big bang theory which is highly criticized in a subject that since the black matter has not yet been proven to exist it is too early to treat the big bang as anything more than just a theory. If such a theory would be express by the bible then people might show their amusement. But people are accepting it. And bible which tells us about salvation and resurrection they give damn
1 Corinthians 15:4, 5
And that he was buried and that he rose again the third day according to the scripture and that he was seen of Cephas then of the twelve.
Seven Times: He appears before peter specially and with six disciples while they were casting their net instead of forgetting the word of Gethsemane what God has told them. (John 21: 1 to 6) Jesus came to Peter and he had a heart-rendering conversation with him he asked him to come in the right direction *(symbolic) and asked him to cast the net into the right side. He once again reminds the truth that God will make him a fisher of men by giving the great responsibility to feed the lamb and his sheep.
Eighth Times: In acts 1:3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by much infallible proof being seen of them forty days and speaking of the things about the kingdom of God. The day of Pentecost was near on this time need of prayer for the establishment of the church is made prepare. He assembled them. Commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem. But wait for the promise of the father which Saith he.
Nine Times: He appears in 1 Corinthians 15:7 After that he was seen of James then of all apostles. James is the brother of Jesus. Who is in latter days became the elder of Jerusalem. He is a faith warrior. The faith of sojourner.
Ten Times: He was seen by more than 500 brethren at once of whom the greater part remain unto this present but some are fallen asleep .and in Jude 1: 14 and Enoch also the seventh from Adam prophesied of these saying behold the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints. Thus all these significant prove of Jesus Christ one must not be entangled with the false beliefs and confusion about his second coming. Let us wait for his coming in delight of his promises.
