(Teacher: Bill Crowder)
Read: 1 Corinthians 15:1-11
The good news of the gospel is not rooted in mythology or legend, but in verified fact, and it’s the greatest story ever told. Paul wrote that the most important event in human history—the resurrection of Jesus Christ—is supported by actual eyewitnesses. While listing disciples who had seen the risen Christ, Paul punctuated the list of eyewitnesses by writing, “After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep” (1 Cor. 15:6). At the time of Paul’s writing, many of those witnesses were still alive and available for questioning.
The resurrection of Christ is not a myth. It is the factual pivot-point of history.
