Explaining the Resurrection
David Pawson teaches what the Bible says about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He explains why the resurrection is intrinsic to the Christian faith and clearly lays out the accounts of the resurrection according to the four gospels. Pawson teaches what it meant to Jesus’ disciples and contemporaries. He, very helpfully, places it in the historical and cultural context of the time. This helps us understand what the resurrection reveals about God and what it means for us now: you too can have a new body in Christ.
Both factual and Scriptural evidence are considered, and while he recognises arguments opposing the resurrection, he then refutes them.
The Explaining Series books have always been amongst Sovereign World’s bestsellers. Each book is just 64 pages and focuses upon a vital aspect of Christian faith and doctrine. They present the Bible’s teaching with clarity and simplicity.
In “Explaining The Resurrection” David Pawson walks us through the events about and consequences following Jesus resurrection. That God has raised Jesus from the dead means that Jesus’ person has been authenticated as Son of God, his words and deeds approved and his sacrifice accepted. This was also a new act of creation, which means that God has gone back to work to create a new universe, but this time new human beings are first and the new heaven and earth he will make at the end.
Anyone who is interested why Jesus resurrection is so important for the human race or is still not convinced that this is a real historical event, should read this book. There is a chapter about main theories used to explain it away as well as one about currently known eyewitness accounts and circumstantial evidences about the fact.
What Jesus did in the 6 weeks following his resurrection and how he prepared his disciples for his and their next stage of ministry is also very interesting read. In my opinion the sequel of this book is “Where is Jesus Now?” which covers Jesus ascension and his current position. Both books could make just one volume.
David Pawson’s “Explaining the Resurrection” is the most rational and plausible discussion of Jesus’ death and resurrection that I have ever encountered. With his usual brilliant insight, Pawson answers questions and explains seeming discrepancies in the differing New Testament accounts of this phenomenon.
I highly recommend the book to both Christians and non-believers. It will satisfy readers’ curiosity and could be a life-changing revelation.
