Endings often leave us with a lingering sensation: “There must be something more!” The same can be said for Jesus’ crucifixion. Alistair Begg draws our attention to the facts of Easter to show that the story does not end with the cross but with the resurrection. Looking to Christ’s crucifixion and triumph over death causes us to reflect on the reality of our sin and the certainty of our forgiveness. This assurance settles the world’s unrest unlike any other worldview.
3For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, 5and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.
