Romans 1:4 Jesus was declared to be the Son of God by the resurrection from the dead.

Acts 2:22-36 The speaking in tongues was evidence of the spirit, and the spirit was evidence that Jesus was raised from the dead. The witness in the first century was regarding the resurrection.

Psalm 16:7-11 Peter quoted David from this psalm. Jesus was the first and to date the only one resurrected from the dead.

1 Corinthians 15:1-3 "According to the scriptures" refers to Psalm 16

Verses 4-8 They were eye witnesses of the resurrected Christ.

Verses 20-23 Christ is the first fruit, and we will also partake of the fruit of the resurrection.

1 Thessalonians 4:14-18 When he returns, those of faith will be raised up.

I John 2:28 and 29 We are to abide in him. A very simple, clear statement of truth is everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him.

1 John 3:1 KJV states "what manner of" and NASB "how great." The Greek word means from what country, nation, or tribe. Could be translated "behold what foreign kind of love." God's love is not found naturally in Humanity. Smith translates "from what far realm?"

Verse 2 It must be experienced to be understood; with our present faculties, we cannot conceive now.

Verses 3-10 To understand these verses rightly, we must acknowledge the use of the Greek words and tenses that imply continual action, habitual behavior.

Verses 11-19 The resurrection of Jesus Christ ensures our hope and, if truly believed, impacts our lifestyle.
