The FACT & SIGNIFICANCE Of JESUS’ RESURRECTION—Matthew 28:1-20

A grain of wheat reveals that it has ‘no life’ in it, if it is planted, yet remains a grain. Only if the grain “dies” to self—surrendering/forsaking it’s current existence as ‘a grain’—only then does it “produce much grain.”(Jn. 12:23-24)

Likewise, a person must surrender him/herself to Jesus so that they may be ‘born again!’ This he/she does in order to invite others to Jesus & thereby into the kingdom of God.

That scenario sets us up for grasping the significance of Jesus’ Resurrection.

*Without Jesus’ resurrection there is no ‘Christianity’ & no hope for humanity!(1Cor. 15:14-17)
