Raised to new life (Heidelberg 17)

In this session we look at the best news ever – the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Why is it the best news? Let’s look into it!

There is only one question in this session: “How does Christ’s resurrection benefit us?” But there are three parts to the answer:

  • First, by his resurrection he has overcome death, so that he could make us share in the righteousness which he had obtained for us by his death.
  • Second, by his power we too are raised up to a new life.
  • Third, Christ’s resurrection is to us a sure pledge of our glorious resurrection.

The key thing is that the resurrection is not simply a future event, but something that makes a difference for our lives in the here and now.

If you enjoy this, you can do the whole series right here on the website, or on the app (see links on the right hand side of the page). Alternatively, I am uploading them regularly to YouTube and Facebook. All sessions on YouTube are available on this playlist.
