Faith In The Resurrection Of Jesus.

A key part of Christian faith is the belief in the actual resurrection of Jesus. A resurrection where Jesus was in human form and he was brought back from death to live forever. Jesus' resurrection proves to us in no certain terms that God has complete power over death.

See Scripture Commentary: John 11:25 advices that believers in the resurrection of Jesus Christ will have eternal life.

The Historical Resurrection Of Jesus.

Jesus' resurrection is many times thought of in abstract terms or just treated as a form of a holiday with the celebration of Easter each year. In reality it is the most important historical event that has ever occurred in the world. This unique historical event consisted of Jesus, in human form, dying on the cross and then three days later Him being resurrected from the dead to live forever.

See Scripture Commentary: Romans 6:9 advises us that Jesus' resurrection is the historical evidence that a human can have power over death.

The Resurrection Spirit.

The Bible says that we can have the same spirit in us as the Spirit of Him that raised Jesus from the dead (Romans 8:11, "But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you").

See Scripture Commentary: Romans 8:11 advises us that we can have the same Resurrection Spirit as Jesus.
