The Theological Significance of the Resurrection

Here is a Bible study list of eight important outcomes of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, with supporting Bible references. I am taking time to meditate on these truths this Easter week. I would recommend it!

  1. Displays His Power (Jn. 2:18-19, 10:15-18; Acts 2:22-24; 2 Cor. 13:4; Eph. 1:19-20; Phil. 3:10)
  2. Declares His Person and Position (Acts 5:30-31; Rom. 1:4-5, 14:9; Col. 1:18; 1 Pet. 3:21-22; Rev. 1:5, 17-18)
  3. Validates His Work (Acts 2:32-36, 13:30-39; Rom. 8:34)
  4. Assures the Believer’s Resurrection (John 11:25-26, 14:19; Rom. 6:8-9, 8:11; 1 Corr. 6:14, 15:20-22; 2 Cor. 4:14; 1 Thes. 4:14-16)
  5. Insures the Believer’s Justification (Rom. 4:24-25)
  6. Impacts the Believer’s Present Life (Rom. 6:4-5, 10-13, 7:4, 8:11, 14:9-12; 1 Cor. 15:58; 2 Cor. 5:15, 13:4; Eph. 1:19-21; Phil. 3:10-14; Col. 2:12-13; 2 Tim. 2:8-10; 1 Pet. 1:3, 21)
  7. Guarantees His Return (1 Thess. 1:10, 4:14)
  8. Affirms His Future Judgment of All Men (Jn. 5:25-29; Acts 10:40-42, 17:30-31; Rom. 14:9-12)

A big thank you to Bro. Layton Talbert for providing this list and granting permission to post it here. I received it as a resource from my mentor and professor, Bro. Timothy Berrey.
