“On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had
prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb.” Luke 24:1,2

For the Christian, the resurrection is everything! It is the death, burial and resurrection that is
the basis of the gospel. It is up to each person to consider the claims of Jesus Christ and the
accounts in the Gospels. Lee Strobel notes: “based on the evidence, (Jesus) did return from the
dead. No other explanation comes close to accounting for all the facts.”

I would challenge our readers to examine the claims or Jesus. Books like, “The Case for Christ,”
and “The Case for the Resurrection,” written by Lee Strobel, former atheist, will be very helpful
to you if you are serious in pursuing an understanding of the claims of Jesus and Christianity.
