He is risen! Alleluia! Jesus Christ is risen from the dead! A
survey taken last year showed in the U.S one out of four
Christians did not believe in Jesus' resurrection from the
dead. Why do you and I believe? True, no one was an eye
witness of the moment of resurrection. But there were
many who were eye witnesses of the risen Christ. They
touched him; they spoke to him; they ate with him, over a
period of forty days. Because of these post-resurrection
encounters they believed and they knew in faith that Jesus
rose from the dead as he had predicted. Their faith
conviction was so strong, they were willing to die for him,
rather than deny what they had experienced. The initial
reason we believe is their testimony and their conviction
even to suffer death for it. But there is more.
