He's Alive


Many people saw Christ alive after his resurrection. The church was established with the conversion of about 3000 people on the day of Pentecost (only a matter of several weeks after the resurrection). The point is made that MANY of these people KNEW who Jesus was (he lived among them) and they KNEW what Peter preached was true.

Matthew 27:50-53 records that when Christ died, many bodies of dead saints arose, and after Christ was resurrected, they came out of their graves, went into Jerusalem and appeared to many people. Imagine seeing that in person. But greater still, the RISEN Christ, was seen by over 500 people. (see 1 Corinthians 15:6)

Many in that day trusted in Christ for their salvation. Many had seen him. Remember the account of Thomas in John 20:24-29, who on seeing and touching Christ said, "My Lord and my God." Verse 29 "Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed."
