Reflections Along the Jesus Way

April 06, 2023 – Quote for the Day:

“… the desire to ‘prove’ the resurrection to be true often causes many to become so focused on the details that they miss the big picture… Proofs are not the foundation of our faith.  Jesus alone is the foundation of our faith.  The gospel is not about intellectual assent to historically proven details…

In the ‘resurrection chapter’ (1 Corinthians 15), Paul does not attempt to ‘prove’ the resurrection of Jesus, but he assumes the resurrection as fact.  He simply states that Jesus is risen, and he calls the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus the gospel – that focus and that foundation is of first importance (1 Corinthians 15:3).  The power of the resurrection does not lie in historical details and proof but in the lives that are transformed by our risen Lord!”
