Jesus Christ’s resurrection represents a demonstration of the power of God, the confirmation of the divinity of Jesus Christ and the grounds of hope for Christian believers.

Jesus Christ’s resurrection was a demonstration of God’s power

The power of the Holy Spirit Ro 1:4; 1Ti 3:16; 1Pe 3:18

The resurrection confirmed Jesus Christ as the Son of God

Jn 20:30-31 John calls Jesus Christ’s miracles “signs” (see also Jn 2:11; 6:2) and his resurrection is the climax, confirming his identity beyond all doubt; Ro 1:4 See also Ps 2:7; Ac 13:33

As the basis of believers’resurrection 1Co 15:20-23 The Law of Moses (Ex 23:16) provided for an offering of the firstfruits of crops to God. The firstfruits were the guarantee of the full harvest to come.
