The Resurrection On Trial

13 Apr

The Resurrection On Trial…

The Sanhedrin was the governing body that leveled the charge against the resurrection, that the disciples stole the body. The Sanhedrin was Israel’s court of law.

Why then in all its history was there never a trial or conviction of these charges? We have the Book of Sanhedrin in the rabbis’ Talmud. But there’s no record of any such trial.

Thus they obviously didn’t have any evidence to prove it. Otherwise they would have used it to stop the new movement.

The Sanhedrin couldn’t produce the body, and they had no way of proving their charge. They only proved one thing – that the tomb was empty – and not by the hand of man, but by the hand of God.

Kingdoms rise and fall but Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. If He abides in you, no matter what things look like in your life, no matter how hopeless, or overwhelming, the good will triumph over the evil.

The light of Jesus is going to conquer the darkness, and every power on earth and hell. He’s alive! He is risen! He has conquered, and so, in Him, will you.

And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8:11

Today, bring any issue you have been struggling with to the light of Jesus and declare, believe, and receive the truth – that He is alive and ruling over it.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
