"Many a gospel message has been spoiled and robbed of its power by omitting the great truth of the resurrection." 1

"Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification" (Romans 4:25).

"For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures" (I Corinthians 15:3,4).

"Failure to grasp the truth concerning death strikes at the very heart of the gospel. Whatever the wages of sin is, Jesus Christ endured it to the full, in order to become man's Saviour. If the wages of sin is eternal punishment, Jesus Christ could not be the Saviour of anyone, for He did not endure that. ‘The wages of sin is death’ (Romans 6:23). ‘Christ died for our sins, was buried and was raised the third day’ (1 Corinthians 15:1-5)." 2
