Jesus Risen From The Dead For His People

A couple of years ago, I wrote a post about how the early Christians viewed the resurrection of Christ and Christians.

"When the early eyewitnesses saw the risen Jesus, what did they actually observe? We might say that they saw walking, talking eternal life. In short, to witness the resurrected Jesus was to witness the reality of the afterlife: For forty days, the light of heaven focused on the land of Israel. It is no wonder this experience changed their lives forever!...Every ounce of evidence for Jesus' resurrection is also evidence for the believer's resurrection." (Gary Habermas and J.P. Moreland, Beyond Death [Wheaton, Illinois: Crossway Books, 1998], pp. 266-267)
