A Review of a Crosswalk.com article 4 Reasons Why The Resurrection Is ‘Of First Importance’!

24 Mar

imageI do not usually do literary reviews. But, tonight I was browsing through Facebook. I came across a post that was titled 4 Reasons Why The Resurrection Is ‘Of First Importance’. I clicked on the link and it lead me to an article of the same name on Crosswalk.com. It was a practical, unassuming story written by Dr. Stanley J. Ward.

It covered the viewpoint of someone who was troubled about certain key points of the Bible asking ‘Is this Bible stuff for real?’ Dr. Ward read scripture regularly as a teenager and still had these questions. I was raised in a Baptist church as a kid, I am a dedicated Christian, and while having slightly different questions this article was still spiritually enlightening and helped put some mental misunderstandings in order.

I particularly clung to the scriptural words of the Apostle Paul, a friend and witness of Jesus Christ’s Resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15:3-8: “For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me.”

As far as I am concerned, it was a good use of 5 minutes! Anyone who has followed my blog knows I make it my aim to tell important stories in a short, quick-to-read format. This article does both.
