God had a promise with a warning. That crises are coming. They will come. God sometimes allow them. And you can see from that moment forward, that this promise, remained all the same. God remained true to His word all throughout the Bible. And we can hold on to it.
Without the resurrection, there would be no hope. Jesus’ death would have had no meaning. He would simply have been a visionary and wise teacher who died. Jesus’ death satisfied the justice of God, but His resurrection allows us to preach the good news and bring this hope to others.
