If Christ really rose from the dead, then it must have major ramifications for our lives. So how does the resurrection shape us? In this episode of White Horse Inn, Eric Landry, Justin Holcomb, Bob Hiller, and Doug Powell discuss the impact of Christ’s resurrection at the cosmic level, institutional level, and personal level. They consider what it means that Christ is victorious over Satan, sin, hell, death, and the grave; they unpack what it means to say “Jesus is Lord”; and they celebrate our ultimate comfort and hope found in the risen Christ.
“As firstborn of the dead, Jesus is both first in time and first in preeminence. Christ is the founder and initiator of a new era that God is bringing about through Jesus’s victory over sin and death. Jesus’s resurrection from death opens the way for all who trust in him to follow him in a resurrection like his when he returns. And this is important because it shows that our ultimate hope is not just for our souls to go to heaven, but for our physical bodies to be raised to new life.”Justin Holcomb
