Introduction Such is the nature of the world today that we live in that we have taken the resurrection of Christ as a Christian tradition and as one of the great miracles that Jesus has ever performed while He walked on earth. His resurrection no longer has the impact that it is supposed to have in the lives of Christians today. Christians have not come to recognize the resurrection of Christ and the act of its significance. It is for this reason that I will seek to demonstrate the significance of the resurrection of Christ by focusing on the uniqueness, the necessity, and the urgency of the resurrection. The significance is first to be seen in its distinctiveness of His resurrection from the dead. There are many aspects around the uniqueness…show more content…

Christ was resurrected to an immortal body that could no longer taste death again and His body was no longer corruptible and imperishable again.

Jesus even ate and drank with his disciples after his resurrection (Luke 24:41-43; Acts 10:41). Paul in the book of Romans 1:4 states that; “and through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be Son of God by His resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord”. Therefore the resurrection of Christ is very much significant and should always be seen for its distinctiveness from the rest of the resurrections that we find in the bible. Furthermore, the resurrection of Christ demonstrated the power behind the His claim to be Saviour of the world: “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die” (John 11:25, 26). Moreover, Christ after His resurrection, He proclaimed, “do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. I have the keys of Hades and of death” (Rev 1:17, 18)
