The resurrection of Jesus

At the conclusion of his message to the inquiring Athenians, Paul says —

“For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead.” – Acts 17:31

Despite all of Jesus’ teaching about His mission, even His disciples are bewildered by His death.  On Easter Sunday, when the women share the news of the resurrection as reported by the angels —

But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense. – Luke 24:11

Once the disciples know, however, that Jesus indeed is risen, they cannot be stopped.  They go straight to the hostile people in Jerusalem and proclaim that Jesus is the Messiah.  Peter declares that the Resurrection of Jesus demonstrates that —

“Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.”  Acts 2:36

The New Testament, then, insists that the Resurrection was God’s authentication of the supremacy of Jesus.
