I pick a book of the Bible and begin to read a chapter or a portion of one, each day. Right now I am reading 1 Corinthians. Most of us know about chapter 13 - The Love Chapter.
This morning I read a portion of chapter 15 - "The Resurrection Chapter". Paul (writer) was trying to dispel some Greek beliefs that Jesus had not raised from the dead:
"But the fact is that Christ
did actually rise from the dead,
and has become the first of millions
who will come back to life again some day."
~ verse 20 LAB
Bible Commentary; "There will always be people who say Jesus didn't rise from the dead. Paul assures us that many people saw Jesus after his resurrection, including more than 500 Christian believers. The resurrection is a historical fact. Don't be discouraged by doubters who deny the resurrection.
"Those related to Christ are Christians, who by faith become Christ's brothers and sisters and share in his resurrection. Because Christ did rise from the dead, we now have the certainty that we who are believers will be resurrected as well."
