Why is Jesus' resurrection a foundational point of Christianity? There are several reasons. First, if Jesus did not rise from the dead, He did not tell the truth. We read in Matt. 16:21, "From the time, Jesus began to show His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and that he must be killed and raised again the third day." Jesus repeated this several times.
Second, Jesus' resurrection makes our resurrection possible. We read in 1 Cor. 15:20 and 23, "But now is Christ risen from the dead and has become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep...But each one in his own order: Christ the first fruits, afterward, those how are Christ's at His coming."
Third, Jesus' resurrection proved who He really was. We read in Rom. 1:4, "And declared to be the son of God with power, according to the Spirit of Holiness by the resurrection of the dead." We serve a living Savior!
