In Step 2 we learnt that we have
inherited 'mortality' from Adam and Eve. Jesus was mortal too, so he had to die.
1 Peter 2:21-22 tells us that JESUS NEVER SINNED. Jesus is the only
person EVER who has achieved this (Hebrews 4:14-15). Death is the result of
sin (Romans 6:23), so God could not allow Jesus to remain dead or he would
be breaking his own rule. On the third day God brought Jesus back to life
This was an amazing event and naturally it took his friends and followers
a while to understand and believe what had happened. Read about their
reactions in Luke 24:1-44.
Over the next 40 days (Acts 1:3) Jesus appeared to many people
convincing them he was alive and teaching them about the kingdom of God.
