Eight Second: The Resurrection of Mickey L. Dennis
The resurrection of Jesus is the central doctrine in my belief. The apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:19 20 that "if only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be. But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep." According to Paul, the entire Christian faith hinges upon the centrality of the resurrection of Jesus on the third day and the hope for a life after our own death. We, Christians, annually celebrate the resurrection or Jesus on the third day and the hope for a life after our own death. Christians annually celebrate the resurrection of Jesus at Easter time as well as weekly by holding service on Sunday (the day of the week of Jesus's resurrection) or the Lord's Day. The resurrection is further supported historically by the conversion of Paul. Not only was Paul a nonbeliever, but he was actually zealously persecuting Christians until his encounter with the resurrected Jesus (Acts 8: 5, Acts 9:1 31). Moreover, Jesus's half-brother, James, was skeptical of Jesus until Jesus appeared to him too (Mark 6:3 4, John 7:3 5, 1 Corinthians 15:7). Indeed, James was so convinced by the resurrection that he became a leader at the Jerusalem church (Acts 15:12 21). It is also attested in all four Gospels that women were the first to discover the empty tomb.
