The Good News About Jesus
BURIAL: Jesus' body was placed in a tomb, where it lay for three days (Luke 23:50-56).
RESURRECTION: The Father did not abandon Jesus to the grave; He raised Him up on the third day (Acts 2:24-32). God, through Jesus, had now conquered both of humanity's problems: sin and death (1 Corinthians 15:21).
APPEARANCES: Jesus' chosen witnesses, the apostles (Acts 1:1-3, 8), are the reason we know this good news about Jesus is true. Jesus' post-resurrection appearances to them turned them from skepticism to belief (John 20:19-31). Afterwards, they were willing to go to their deaths proclaiming that Christ had been raised (Acts 5:31-33; 21:13).
