Resurrection ProphecyBy John Cortright on 04/28/2019
Jesus taught resurrection from the Old Testament Scriptures. Luke 18:31; 24:44-46
Paul taught resurrection from the Hebrew Scriptures. Acts 17:2-3; 24:14-15; 26:22-23; 1 Cor 15:3-4
He believed in God -- that God could bring life from death. Gen 17:15-19; Heb 11:11-12; Rom 4:16-25
He offered Isaac, believing in resurrection. Gen 22:1-14; Heb 11:17-20
He prophesied that the Messiah would not see corruption. Ps 16:10; Acts 2:22-32
The Messiah was first to be raised from the dead. Others will follow. Because he was raised, we will live again! 1 Corinthians 15:20-23; Rom 8:11; Col 1:18
Job foresaw that his redeemer would live, and he would see life again. Job 19:25-26
The psalmist knew that no man can rescue himself from death, but there will be redemption from Sheol!
Isaiah 25:6-9; 26:19
Isaiah spoke of resurrection. Death will be swallowed up for all time!
Daniel spoke of resurrection.
This is not simply figurative language about a restoration of Israel. There will be a real, literal resurrection of the dead. We now can know for certain and have confidence in our future because Jesus Christ was raised from the dead -- the first fruits of all who sleep in the dust of the earth.
John 5:28-29; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 Christ is coming back!
1 Peter 1:3-5 We have a living hope -- a message of salvation to share. Spread the good news!
