The Resurrection

This is why the resurrection of Jesus Christ was so important, more important even then His death I would argue. This is what makes Him different and better than any other savior or prophet to ever live:

“If Christ had remained dead like any other “savior” or “teacher” or “prophet”, his death would have meant nothing more than yours or mine. Death’s waves would have closed over him just as they do over every other human life, every claim he made would have sunk into nothingness, and humanity would still be without hope of being saved from sin. But when breath entered his resurrection lungs again, when resurrection life electrified his glorified body, everything Jesus claimed was fully, finally, unquestionably, and irrevocably vindicated.”ย  (emphasis added)
