The resurrection of Jesus stands out as the most important event of all time and history. We can back up that statement by remembering what Jesus told Martha, the sister of Lazarus, before raising him from the dead. Jesus said (John 11:25-26). It is extremely important that we understand why the resurrection of Jesus from the dead is the basis of our hope. In the text of our lesson (1 Cor 15:1-20), Paul explained why Jesus’ resurrection is a matter of importance to us.
