Romans 8:11

If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.

Resurrection Power in Your Life

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

Paul expressed concern for the church of Jesus Christ when he prayed, “May God reveal to you not just the past greatness of Christ but his present greatness.” Here is his specific prayer: “That you may know what is the hope of His calling … what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power” (Ephesians 1:18-19). 

Resurrection Power for Daily Life

Gary Wilkerson

Any Christian will tell you, “Jesus died for my sins.” They know certain parts of the story — that Jesus died and rose again — but I’ve learned that few can tell you what his resurrection means in their daily life. They fail to apply God’s powerful truths to the way they live and believe, and that makes all the difference in the world.

Mark 16:6-7

And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.”

The Other Side of the Stone

Gary Wilkerson

“Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen shroud and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had cut in the rock. And he rolled a great stone to the entrance of the tomb and went away” (Matthew 27:59-60).

When Jesus was placed in the tomb following his crucifixion, he left the disciples heartbroken and baffled. When the massive stone rolled in front of the doorway to seal the tomb, everyone had a sad sense of finality. After all, Jesus said, “It is finished” (John 19:30), and then he bowed his head and died.

Evidence of the Resurrection: The Appearances

Evan Wilkerson

The most important claim for Christianity is that Jesus has risen, a claim that have been tested and tried throughout the history of Christianity.

The claim that Jesus rose from the dead is the reason the church still stands.

When Jesus’ followers witnessed him die on a cross, they were utterly defeated. Yet, only three days later, the triumphant news, “I have seen the Lord!” would begin to rapidly spread (John 20:18). 

Jesus’ Empty Tomb: Elaborate Hoax or Simple Fact

Evan Wilkerson

Witness accounts about Christ’s resurrection in the New Testament are a cornerstone of our faith and have been debated for centuries.

One of the standard challenges many Christians face in terms of the Bible’s account is Jesus’ tomb. People may ask, “Has Christ’s tomb ever been found? What if his body is still in there? Or what if the disciples stole Jesus’ body and hid it?”
