Just as the Old
Testament prophecies said, He died, was buried and
arose again on the third day. He appeared many
times to His disciples and to as many as 500 people
at once. (Matt. 28, 1 Cor. 15)
He taught that He
was the Son of God. (Matt. 11:27, Luke 10:22,
spoke of God as His Father. Matt. 7, 10, 11, 12,
15, 16, 18, 20, etc.)

and earth. (Matt. 28:18)

14:33 and John 20:25-28)
said that He was from Heaven. (John 5:17-18)
claimed that He should have the same reverence that
God has. (John 5:23)
He said He would
raise all humans from the grave and judge them.
He promised to
give eternal life to all who would trust in Him.

failed to please Father God and never sinned.

Jesus appeared to
many witnesses after His resurrection, over a period
of six weeks: to certain women, Mary Magdalene,
Peter, Cleopas and another disciple, to the ten
disciples assembled together, to the eleven a week
later, to several disciples at the Sea of Galilee,

transformation of his life, from persecutor to
preacher of the Gospel, can only be explained by a
vision of the resurrected Christ.
Only Jesus Christ
offers to forgive us, to give us His righteousness,
eternal life, a new past, a new present and a
new future. He alone replaces our old degenerate
nature with a divine new nature. God is not willing
for any one of us to perish, but has come to take
our punishment onto Himself and to offer us eternal
life through Jesus Christ.
To accept Jesus,
as Savior and Lord, is not just giving mental assent
to His claims. John 1:12 says that we must
believe and also receive Him in order to become the
children of God. Jesus promised that He is standing
of the door of your heart and knocking and if you
would invite Him in, He would actually come into you
to live and abide forever. (Rev. 3:20, John 15) We
must not only believe on Him with our minds but also
with our hearts, confessing Him as our own Savior
and Lord. Would you like to have a more intimate
personal relationship with Jesus Christ?
you could know for sure that you could have a more
personal relationship with the God of the universe,
would you be interested?
Know Jesus Christ.
