Text : John 20:15,16.

15: Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
16: Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.

When Jesus said to Martha in John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: what does this mean? The bible is written perfectly. Remember that God told Adam in Genesis 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. We all died through Adam, but resurrected through Christ.

Jesus to said, ‘ I am the resurrection and the life ‘, death precedes resurrection, note that he didn’t say, ‘ I am the death, the resurrection and the life, if you observe the passage carefully, you will notice the definite article ‘ the ‘ preceded both ‘ resurrection ‘ and ‘ life ‘ in all versions, it could have been written as ‘ I am resurrection and life ‘ or ‘ I am the resurrection and life ‘ but rather it is written as ‘ I am the resurrection and the life ‘, what does this mean?

This is what it means; there is only one death, the whole human race died through Adam. That was the only death because everyone will face eternity either hell or heaven. Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

So, Jesus is the only resurrection from the death, through him we are raised from the death Adam brought. The phrase ‘ the life ‘ means he is the only source of life, eternal life, we will never die again. Please note, that Adam was not meant to die at creation, but he lost eternal life and that Jesus came to restore.

I will raise 2 points here:

1, THE EMPTY GRAVE: this means death is conquered, what brought death in the first place: 1 Corinthians 15:56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. NLT. The Resurrection first of all dealt with sin which brings death, our victory over sin a proof of his resurrection, IF YOU’RE STILL LIVING IN SIN, YOU’VE GOT NO PROOF OF HIS RESURRECTION.

2, HE APPEARED TO HIS DISCIPLES John 20:19, they saw him, he appeared to them, he is still visiting his own in our days; everyone who seeks him finds him. If you spend time to seek him personally, he will visit you, you will feel his presence, and when he does it will be obvious to people that Jesus is alive in your life, look at this scripture: Acts 4:13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. His presence will be visible in your life as you serve him. One Alhaja (a Muslim woman) who has watched my life for years once told me, ‘ if you don’t know, we know; God’s hand is upon you ‘.

When people can see Jesus in our lives they will believe that he lives. God bless you.

* Lord make my life a proof of your resurrection in Jesus name.

Genesis 26, 2 Corinthians 6).
