The resurrection

Timeless truths from John 20:30-31.

John the Apostle states his purpose for his book in verse 31, “But these are written so that you may believe Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and by believing you may have life in His name.” John’s purpose is evangelistic. He records 7 signs then concludes with the 8th and greatest sign, the resurrection.

Our belief is based on the fact of the resurrection. There would be no hope to have eternal life without the resurrection. Jesus performed many signs but the most incredible sign of all was His resurrection. He defeated death, hell, and the grave. He rose victorious. Because He lives, we too shall live.

“Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of His disciples that are not written in this book. But these are written so that you may believe Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and by believing you may have life in His name.” John‬ ‭20:30-31‬ ‭HCSB‬‬
