Millions Have Never Heard WHY CHRIST ROSE FROM THE DEAD – Clayton D Steep – Plain Truth Magazine
Why was Jesus’ resurrection necessary? Many believe his “soul” remained alive between the crucifixion and the resurrection. But if his “soul” were alive, why did his body have to be resurrected for him to live again? Think about it. If only Jesus’ body died from the rigors of his crucifixion, but the real he or his “soul” was still alive, why was it necessary for his body to be resurrected three days after his death and burial? Why would he need his body if, when he died, he was already an “immortal soul”? After Jesus fulfilled his mission in the human flesh and his lifeless body was laid in a tomb, why did it- the body- have to be brought back to life if the real Jesus was alive elsewhere as a “spirit” or an “immortal soul”? If one’s “immortal soul” can live apart from the body, what need is there of a resurrection to life? For that matter, why are Christians to be resurrected out of their graves as Jesus was if they are already alive apart from their bodies? If their “immortal souls” have already gone to heaven or paradise when they die, why do Christians need to be resurrected in order to live again?
