SPECIAL EASTER BIBLE STUDY

SPECIAL EASTER BIBLE STUDY
TOPIC CHRIST IS RISEN
TEXT Matt 26:47 – 28:10
MEMORY VERSE Matt 28:5-6
INTRODUCTION
After Jesus faced much opposition for His teachings, He was betrayed by one of His disciples (Judas Iscariot), disowned by His own people (the Jews), crucified by the Romans and was buried. Crucifixion was a common mode of punishment among heathen nations in the early times, and was regarded as the most humiliating and horrible form of death. Three days later, Jesus rode from the dead and appeared to His disciples and many others (1Cor 15:1-8), confirming that He is indeed King over life and death.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is one of the cardinal facts and doctrines of the Gospel. If Christ did not rise from the dead, our faith would have been in vain (1Cor 15:14). The whole of the New Testament revelation rests on this historical truth. Our justification was secured by His obedience unto death and resurrection (Rom 4:25). Christ’s resurrection is a sure proof that He made a full atonement for our sins, that His sacrifice was accepted as a satisfaction to divine justice and His blood a ransom for sinners. It is also a pledge and an earnest assurance of the resurrection of all believers (Rom 8:11; 1Cor 6:14; Php 3:21; 1Thes 4:16). As He lives, they shall live also.
DISCUSSION QUESTIONS
1. Why did Jesu come to the world to suffer and die in the hands of sinners? (Isa 53:1-12; John 3:16; 1Pet 3:18).
2. What is the significance of the death and resurrection of Jesus for Christians, and mankind in general? (Rom 6:3-4; 1Cor 15:14; Php 2:5-11).
