It is said that Jaroslav Jan Pelikan, a leading scholar in the history of Christianity and Sterling Prof. Everett of history at Yale University, on his deathbed confessed this: If Christ has not risen from the dead, nothing else matters. If Christ has risen from the dead, nothing else matters. I came across this quote in my research for the ""Apologetics Together"" courses that I offer on social media and was immediately awed at its profound implications. Indeed, if Jesus has not risen, we must agree with Saint Paul that the world remains in their sins and are eternally lost. However, since Jesus has risen, those who have placed their trust in him are assured of salvation and eternal life. This book looks at the prophecies and fulfillment in the Scriptures which assure us that he who died on the cross at Calvary rose again on the third day for our justification.
