There is no “Christianity” without the Resurrection. Period.

April 17, 2022

By Tim Barber

In my last video, we talked about the fact that people have this messed up view of Heaven. They believe that the Bible says that Heaven is a non-physical place. The Scriptures NEVER say that.

We mentioned that most of our ideas about Heaven come to us from Greek philosophy and not the Bible.

Today is Easter. Easter is the time of year in which we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus and the inauguration of the New Creation way of things. The New Creation has not been consummated yet, but it is inaugurated.

We’re celebrating nothing less than the central hope of Christianity – as Paul says in Ephesians 1, the unifying of all things in Christ, things in Heaven and things on Earth.

Easter is about the resurrection, and the resurrection is about renewed physicality.

Resurrection means that on the Third Day, Jesus’s Tomb was Empty.

Jesus’s body had been transformed, and the grave clothes left aside folded neatly, as if to say “I’m done with those, I won’t need them anymore.” And there was no precedent for this.

When Lazarus was raised, he came back into the same life he had before, still wrapped up in the grave clothes. And presumably he died some years later.

Put another way, resurrection is the state of TOTAL OVERLAP between Heaven & Earth. It is the name given to the state something is in when God completes His plan to unify Heaven & Earth in that thing.

My favorite passage to go to for this is 1 Corinthians 15. Let’s dive into this incredible passage in the video!
