Why is Easter important? Because it proved that Jesus Christ was telling the truth. Jesus Christ made outrageous claims. Claims that no good man would make. Claims like I’m the Son of God. I am God in human form. I am the only way to heaven. I’m the way, the truth and the life.
Lots of people throughout history have claimed to be God, and Napoleon and prophets and deities all kinds of things. The difference is that Jesus was the only one to prove it. A lot of people claimed to be God. Jesus said I’m going to prove it. I’m going to let them put me to death. I’m going to die for the sins of the world and three days later I’m going to raise myself back to life. Which is exactly what he did.
This weekend about 2.3 billion people in the world are celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
