Is Jesus dead?
Here's the answer:
Jesus is alive! He rose from the dead.
The story of Jesus’ death and burial has a very happy ending! The Bible tells us that three days after Jesus was put into the tomb, He walked out alive. He rose from the dead! Some angels came and rolled the stone away so Jesus’ followers could see He was no longer dead.
Why did Jesus raise from the dead? If Jesus had only died and never been resurrected, His death would have been like the normal death of a human. But the resurrection shows Jesus is the Son of God, with the power to come back to life (John 10:17–18.)
The resurrection proves God the Father accepted Jesus and His saving work on the cross (Acts 17:31). As God gave Jesus new life, He also gives new life in Christ to believers who were dead in sin (Ephesians 2:1–6). God saves believers who turn from sin and trust the Savior and Lord Jesus (1 John 1:9).
"What I received I passed on to you. And it is the most important of all. Here is what it is. Christ died for our sins, just as Scripture said he would. He was buried. He was raised from the dead on the third day, just as Scripture said he would be. He appeared to Peter. Then he appeared to the 12 apostles. After that, he appeared to more than 500 brothers and sisters at the same time. Most of them are still living. But some have died. He appeared to James. Then he appeared to all the apostles. Last of all, he also appeared to me. I was like someone who wasn’t born at the right time" (1 Corinthians 15:3-8).
