WHY, WHY, WHY… 

DO WE LOOK FOR THE LIVING

AMONG THE DEAD?

Luke 24:5-6

Dr. Thomas Q. Robbins
 
 
 
  
 Today’s Bible study involves the resurrection power of Jesus Christ that introduced into history a new perspective, a new order, a new way of living life and facing death. 

Have you ever considered the question, “What would have happened if the Resurrection had not happened?" We would not have had the annual celebration of joy and eternal life we all experienced at Easter.  We would only know Jesus Christ as a good man, a great teacher and leader of a religious group like so many before and after.

We would have no hope for eternity and have to figure out ways to cope with living in this world system and handling the problem of evil that is so evident in every area of our lives.  You are probably thinking of other consequences that are even more powerful than the one’s mentioned because the Resurrection is so pivotal to the Christian faith?

The empty grave was truly “a new beginning” of a new beginning for human kind.  In the account in the book of Luke, the setting is the tomb where the women had gone to prepare the body of Jesus for formal burial. 

Two angels appear and speak to those who have arrived and found an empty tomb.  Thomas Q. Robbins focuses on the two short sentences for this lesson as written in the 24th chapter of Luke, verses 5 and 6.  The question for us is . . .

Something To Consider

God used cosmic events and entered into historical events in the early years of his revelation to mankind but that general revelation was incomplete.   Not until He came to earth as a little baby, in a humble setting, did God complete what he intended.  He revealed his will for the salvation of the world through his son.   Jesus was both flesh and God.  He entered into the history of mankind and was seen and heard as "one of us."  He came to earth, not to condemn the world but that the world through His plan and person could be reconciled and have a personal relationship with him. (1 John 3:16)   -Thomas Q.
