Christ's Death, Burial and Resurrection

Jesus Died:

Jesus was crucified on a cross in approximately A.D. 30. Before he was nailed to this cross, He was beaten, whipped and mocked. You can read the details in Matthew chapter 27, Mark chapter 15, Luke chapter 23 and John chapter 19.

1 Peter 2:24 says : "...and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed." (NAS)

Jesus was Buried in a Tomb:

After Jesus' death, He was wrapped in linen cloth and buried in a tomb given by a man called Joseph of Arimathea:

And so they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen wrappings with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews. Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had yet been laid. John 19:40-41 (NAS)

Jesus Rose from the Grave on the 3rd Day!

But on the third day (the first Sunday following the Passover feast) Jesus rose from the dead. You can read about his resurrection in Matthew chapter 28, Mark chapter 16, Luke chapter 24 and John chapter 20. All of the people that saw Jesus after His resurrection are listed in I Corinthians 15:5-8.

After Jesus rose from the dead, He gave very clear instructions to His disciples (see Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:15-16, Luke 24:44-49, John 20:21ff).  Then, a few days before the feast of Pentecost (50 days after the Passover), Jesus ascended into heaven.

What happened after Jesus ascended to heaven?

The events following Jesus' ascension (from the time period from approximately A.D. 30 to AD 65) are recorded in the book of Acts. The letters written to the Christians during that time period are recorded in the books of Romans through Revelation.

This web site was first created in the year 2000 AD (AD comes from the Latin phrase "anno Domini", translated "in the year of our Lord"), or in other words, 2000 years from the birth of Christ.  If Jesus didn't rise from the dead, would the world have set its calendars from the date of His birth?
