Yes, Jesus Christ is alive today. There is strong evidence for the fact that he was resurrected to life. For a start, no one could produce a corpse to prove otherwise, even though the religious rulers of the day would dearly have loved to do so. They tried to spread the rumour that Christ’s disciples had stolen the body. Had that been true, Christ’s frightened and disillusioned company of disciples would have remained in that feeble state. The reality was that they were transformed and galvanised into action as fearless and energetic preachers of the Gospel.
Their message was founded upon the fact of his resurrection, and they hazarded their lives to proclaim it. Furthermore, they taught emphatically that the living Jesus Christ is going to come back to earth to fulfil his destiny to be King of the world – that is, to return literally, personally and visibly. His return to earth is mentioned in the New Testament more than 300 times. This is because he has momentously important unfinished business to accomplish on behalf of his Father.
To help you get to grips with this momentous subject, we invite you to a free Bible presentation on this vital topic, Why it’s certain that Jesus is alive. This will be at 7.00pm on Sunday evening the 29th of October. The venue is the Christadelphian Hall, 489 Mount Gravatt-Capalaba Road, corner of Boyanda Street, opposite Ham Road, Wishart.
