Why we say ‘Christ IS risen’ – Brad Jersak

"Christ is Risen!"  In the aftermath of Easter celebrations across the globe, the phrase "Christ is risen!" has been expressed with enthusiasm, perhaps 100s of millions of times by Jesus' followers of innumerable languages, nations and cultures.

Above them, Christ holds up the “celestial village” (the kingdom of God). From ...

Q&R with Brad Jersak – What do you make of “Soul Sleep”?

Question: What do you make of the idea of "soul sleep"? Response: Definition For our readers' sake, let's briefly define "soul sleep."Soul sleep is the belief that when Christians (specifically) die, the soul enters a state of unconscious rest until the final resurrection. "Asleep" The biblical warrant for this view is that Scripture (including Jesus) does refer to those who've died (bodily death) as "asleep." Jesus says of Jairus' daughter, “Why all this commotion and wailing? The child is not dead but asleep” (Mark 5:39). Again John 11, Jesus says, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I go, so that I may awaken him out of sleep.�...

Is It True? by Greg Albrecht

The next time you are in the checkout line at the grocery store imagine turning to the person next to you and joyfully announcing “Christ is risen!” Can you picture the bewildered expressions of your fellow shoppers? Imagine you are taking a walk and when someone passes by you greet them by saying, “Christ is risen!” Some of those people would ignore you, and perhaps walk a little faster to put more distance between them and you. Is it true that Jesus was resurrected? Is it true that Jesus is now alive, with his same physical body made immortal, a body that is incorruptible, impervious to aging, disease and death? Did you know ...
