He Is Risen: 9 Glories Of The Resurrection
In both the OT and NT, resurrections are rare but they did occur. No doubt, it is probably best to view these resurrections more as resuscitations since there is no evidence that those who were raised remained permanently alive. For example, in the case of Lazarus, our Lord raised him from the dead, but we presume that Lazarus would have died again as even now he awaits the final resurrection.
Instead of being like the resurrection of Lazarus, it is viewed as nothing less than the resurrection of all resurrections and the beginning of an entirely new creation order because, after all, it is the resurrection of the divine Son. Proof of this assertion is not hard to find.

The reason for the incarnation of the eternal Son, the second person of the triune Godhead, is to save us from our sins Matt and to inaugurate a new covenant in his cross work on our behalf Heb ; The Son took on our humanity for the purpose of paying for our sin, defeating the power of death, and accomplishing our eternal redemption. At the heart of the human problem is sin before God which results in death, and apart from payment of our sin and the defeat of death, there is no salvation.
In our Lord Jesus Christ, this is precisely what has occurred. There is more evidence that Jesus rose from the dead than there is that Julius Caesar ever lived of that Alexander the Great died at the age of thirty-three.
The Resurrection: A Glorious Fact! | Grace Bible Baptist Church, Leesburg FL
It is strange that historians will accept thousands of facts for which they can produce only shreds of evidence. But in the face of the overwhelming evidence of the resurrection of Jesus Christ they cast a skeptical eye and hold intellectual doubts. The trouble with these people is that they do not want to believe.
Their spiritual vision is so blinded and they are so completely prejudiced that they cannot accept the glorious fact of the resurrection of Christ on Bible testimony alone.
The Glorious FACT of the Resurrection
The resurrection means, first, that Christ was undeniably God. He was what He claimed to be. Christ was Deity in the flesh.
The Scripture teaches that as Christians, our bodies may go to the grave but they are going to be raised on the great resurrection morning. Then will death be swallowed up in victory.
