delivered to you as of first importance what I also
received, that Christ
died for our sins according to
the Scriptures, 4and that He was
and that He was
raised on the third day according to
the Scriptures... 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (NAS)
Death, Burial and Resurrection
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:
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
Jesus Rose from the Grave on the 3rd
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
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.

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?
