Life’s Most Certain
and Important Fact


   “I am the only source of resurrection and eternal life; no one can come to the Father except through Me or by My name. For just as the Father intends to raise the dead and build a righteous kingdom, even so the Son will give eternal life to whomever He wishes. I want you to know this also–that all authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. So go with determination and make disciples of all the nations. For I and My Father have appointed you twelve to be my witnesses not only to Israel, but also to the remotest parts of the earth.”
     – Jesus Christ, 33 A.D. (Gospels/Acts)


   “We apostles are eyewitnesses of everything that Jesus did in the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem. The Jewish leaders had him put to death on a Roman cross; but God raised Him to life again on the third day and caused Him to appear, not to everyone, but only to those witnesses who had already been chosen, that is, to us who ate and drank with Him after He rose from death. And Jesus also commanded us to preach the gospel to the people and to solemnly testify that He is the one whom God has appointed judge of the living and the dead. The prophets have already testified about Him, saying that anyone who believes in Him will have their sins forgiven through the power of His name.”
   – Peter, 39 A.D. (Acts 10)


   “God raised Christ from death, and for many days afterward He appeared to those determined disciples who had accompanied Him during His earthly ministry. They are now witnesses for Him to all the people of Israel.”
     – Paul, 46 A.D. (Acts 13)


   “My authority to be an apostle does not come from human beings or by any human means. It comes from Jesus Christ and God the Father (who raised Jesus to eternal life). And the gospel which I preach everywhere is not of human origin either. I did not invent it myself. I did not receive it from any other human being, nor did anyone teach it to me. Instead, it was Christ Jesus Himself who revealed it to me.”
     – Paul, 49 A.D. (Galatians 1)


   “Thankfully, you clearly recognized that the gospel we preached was genuinely sent from God, and not something just made up by men.”
     – Paul, 50 A.D. (1 Thessalonians 2)


   “We apostles have publicly testified about God that He raised Christ from the dead. Therefore, if Christ wasn’t raised to life, our message is worthless. If fact, if Christ has not been raised, then we are all liars and your faith is nothing more than a delusion! But the certain fact is that Jesus Christ has indeed been raised from the dead. He has become the first of a great harvest of those who will be raised to life again.”
     – Paul, 56 A.D. (1 Corinthians 15)


   “After Jesus had suffered on the cross, He then appeared repeatedly to His twelve apostles–to clearly prove to all of them that He was alive again. They saw the Lord over a period of forty days, during which He spoke to them plainly about the coming kingdom of God.”
     – Luke, 62 A.D. (Acts 1)


   “This report is from an eyewitness giving an accurate account; it is presented so that you, also, can believe the truth.”
     – John, 85 A.D. (John 19)


   “We are truthfully reporting about what we ourselves have actually seen and heard. We saw the Lord with our own eyes and touched Him with our own hands. And now, we once again testify to you that the Father sent His Son to be the Savior of the world.”
     – John, 90 A.D. (1 John 1 & 4)
