Title of drawing: "He Bodily Rose" (Matthew 27, Mark 15, Luke 23, John 19)
Those that love the truth listen to Jesus and there is no religious or political mechanism that can ever stop him. The physical, bodily resurrection of Jesus is the miracle of all miracles and the foundation of Christianity. It split time. It conquered death. It pays for every sin past, present, and future when we believe it and receive his sacrifice as personally applicable.
The falsifiability of a bodily resurrection presented an opportunity to be empirically tested as true. The physically resurrected body of Christ proves the words and actions of Jesus to have always been pointing to God's specific and intimate love for every individual one of us. The empty tomb fills our life with meaning, with hope, and with a fulfilled promise that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. Jesus is the way we can go. The truth we can trust as our plumb line, and he is the life that is overflowing, abundant, and undefeatable.
