“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.” John 11:25
When He uttered these words, Jesus was saying more than that He gives resurrection and life. He was declaring that it is impossible for the final death to have dominion over Him because He is life.
Jesus not only is life but He gives life to us believers so that death will never triumph over us.
“But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.” (1 Cor. 15:13-14). The resurrection is a foundation of our faith; if Christ is not risen then our preachings and our faith would be useless. 1 Cor. 15:54-56 tells us that the sting of death is sin that brought us under the power of death; but we have victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” (Col. 3:1)
There is no resurrection apart from Jesus Christ, and there is no eternal life apart from Jesus Christ..
