Does it really matter if Jesus was bodily raised from the dead? The Apostle Paul addresses this critical question in his letter to the Corinthians. If Christ has not been raised, there are all kinds of implications. It’s like a line of dominoes: once one falls, they all fall. Paul argues that the Christian faith is worthless without the resurrection. Consider Paul’s logic as he explains why the bodily resurrection of Jesus is essential to the content of our faith.
