Series: Amazing Jesus
INTRODUCTION: 1 Corinthians 15:1-11 is a creed recited in the early church, the whole gospel in a few verses. The scriptures are the best source to understand the purpose and power of Christ's death. The testimony of the scriptures is overwhelming as we consider the importance and meaning of Christ's death. It indeed makes His death unique, incomparable, infinite and of eternal value. Christ Himself predicted the fact and manner of His death and taught that His death had a universal significance. "Literally the word passion means suffering. It conveys the idea of intense suffering, suffering that involves the inner as well as the outer being, his soul and spirit as well as his rent body." (Psalm 22:14-15; 1 Peter 2:24; Colossians 1:20)
