1:11 – WHY IS THE RESURRECTION SO IMPORTANT? THE CENTRAL EVENT OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH. (1) PROVES THAT JESUS IS GOD. (2) PROVES THE FATHER ACCEPTED JESUS’ SACRIFICIAL DEATH ON THE CROSS. (3) PROVES THAT ALL CHRISTIANS WILL BE RESURRECTED. 1 CORINTHIANS 15:14

 

2:09 – ANY PROOF? 1) 12 HISTORICAL FACTS NEARLY ALL SCHOLARSHIP AGREES ON, 2) EARLY CHRISTIAN CREEDS. CREEDS ARE STATEMENTS OF SHARED BELIEF. DATE 3-20 YEARS AFTER THE RESURRECTION. THEY PROVE THE RESURRECTION OCCURRED.

 

3:43 – HOW DO THE CREEDS WORK? SHARED VERBALLY, LATER WRITTEN DOWN. EARLIEST CHRISTIAN CREED IS 1 CORINTHIANS 15:3-8 (3-8 YEARS AFTER THE RESURRECTION).
