“And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?”
King James Version (KJV)

I find this verse as one of my favorites in the Bible. Here are two angles giving testimony to our risen Lord. No other religion can make the claim that their leader or founder of their religion has risen and then take you to an empty tomb an show you. Go to any religion and ask them where is your savior. Men have come and gone as they will in the future and will lead men astray however if they are still living it 's only a matter of time and you can visit their tomb. 1 Cor:15:17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is in vain, ye are yet in your sins. vs 19 goes on to say if in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

Like all things, we try to interpret things using conventional wisdom and usually miss the point. The fact that Jesus DIED and AROSE after 3 days is not a normal occurence. In knowing this fact alone, all people that actually witnessed Jesus ' death and burial were privy to a once in a lifetime event. It was on this basis that the cornerstone of our faith was laid. How could people not believe that He was God after all of that? Easy as the flesh can never comprehend what the spirit represents. Peace out, Papacool.

I found it a bit unusual, knowing that Jesus is alive, to have the same verse repeated so many times, was that just to make the point that Jesus was and still is alive?

What the verse is letting us know is that jesus the son of /God himself is not dead he is alive . Just like he was three days earlier when they thaught they have killed him for good on that old rugged cross. The romans did not realize he just went to sleep for three days then got up to be with his father or should I say himself. The bible tells he told the deciples when you see me you see my father, so we know that God can not be dead because he is a spirit and IF will say this and proud to say it he dwells in me. Thank lord for alowing me to be your friend.
