THE ESSENCE OF CHRISTIANITY (Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ)

Dolf Tiyono



Death and Resurrection of Jesus is central to Christianity. Imagine, without death and resurrection can not work out salvation. Because of Christ's death on the cross so that sin can be redeemed and believers receive salvation.

To be able to trust and believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus, the first person must realize that Jesus is both God and human. If he is not God, then Jesus could not rise and if not human Jesus could not die.

Faith in the existence of Jesus as God one hundred percent and human one hundred percent is what brings people actually trust the work of Jesus' death and resurrection. So it can be said the death and resurrection of Jesus is the “essence of all Christianity”.
