In this class on the meaning of the resurrection we look at evidences for the resurrection, the implications of Jesus’ eternal life for us, and what we learn from the way Jesus engaged with people who witnessed his resurrected body.

The ‘Nazareth inscription’ contains the following decree from Caesar: “Let no one remove them [bodies] for any reason. If not, however [i.e., if anyone does so], capital punishment on the charge of tomb robbery I will to take place.”

Some of the key texts:
• Heb 7:23-28
• Rom 8:31-37
• 1Tim. 6:11-12
• Rom. 6:4

1. For you, what is the most convincing piece of evidence for the resurrection?
2. What does the resurrection mean for you in your daily life?
3. In what way does the resurrection have an impact on your devotional life?
