Gottes Herrlichkeit sehen!
Sonn.talk: Aus der Dunkelheit ins Licht
Barmherzigkeit in einer unbarmherzigen Welt
This is the right question: How do we know that Christ Jesus has truly physically risen from the dead? If He had not risen we will not rise either once we will have died. Thomas Lorenz rightly argues that the reason why we know with certainty is because of the testimony of those who experienced what happened in those days, because of their changed lives: Scripture gives us the reports of the eye-witnesses beginning with the women at the empty grave to the Damaskus road experience of the one who became the apostle Paul. Next is the reliability of the written reports: differences between the texts show their trustworthiness. True reporting from different angles will always show differences. The argument that diversity indicates fabrication is simply false. It is worth listening to this apologetic sermon again to remember some of the fine points like for instance the reference to the Acts of the Apostles that were also written by the physician Luke who reported what happened after the resurrection.
A sermon is necessarily limited in scope. Perhaps it would be useful next time to add the ultimate poof for the veracity of the resurrection: the crown witness of the continued existence of the people and the nation of Israel. Christ Jesus is Yeshua HaMashia. He cannot be disconnected from the numerous Hebrew prophecies in the Old Testament and the Jewish history. Jesus’ death and resurrection was prophesied and was fulfilled ‘according to the Scriptures.’ God’s eternal covenant with Abraham and his offspring includes the covenant with King David. Jesus revealed himself as the descendant of David who will return to Jerusalem to set up His Davidic Kingdom (Rev 22:16). The testimony of Jesus I greater than the testimony of those whose lives were changed: he claimed himself that he would rise again on the third day (see his comments on the rebuilding of the temple in three days).
The prophet Zecharia predicts that Israel will see “the one whom they have pierced” (Zech 12:10) which will happen when “all Israel will be saved” (11:26). Note that this historic moment will have to happen in space and time before eternity can follow. Israel will have to be in its promised land where Jesus will set up His messianic Kingdom on earth. The fact that this nation returned to the stage of history is the implicit proof of His resurrection – and the resurrection of all – some for eternal life and some for eternal perition (John 3:16-18).
