"...The importance of Christ's resurrection will be seen when we consider that if he rose, the gospel is true and if he rose not it is false.
    "His resurrection from the dead makes it manifest that his sacrifice was accepted.

"Our justification was secured by His obedience to the death and therefore He was raised from the dead:.Romans 4:25.

"His resurrection is a proof that He made a full atonement for our sins, that His sacrifice (His life offered to God for us all) was accepted as a satisfaction to divine justice and His blood a ransom for sinners.

"It is also a pledge and an earnest of the resurrection of all believers -Romans 8:11; 1Corinthians 6:14; 15:47-49; Philippians 3:21; 1John 3:2. As He lives, they shall live also. 

"The resurrection proved Him to be the Son of God, inasmuch as it authenticated all His claims -again, John 2:19; 10:17

"If Christ did not rise, the whole scheme of redemption is a failure and all the predictions and anticipation of its glorious results for time and for eternity, for men and for angels of every rank and order, are proved to be chimeras (an impossible and foolish fantasy). 
    "Therefore Bible is true from Genesis to Revelation." 1Corinthians 15:20 "But now is Christ risen from the dead and become the first fruits of them that slept." 

"The kingdom of darkness has been overthrown, Satan has fallen as lightning from heaven and the triumph of truth over error, of good over evil, of happiness over misery is for ever secured." ...Hodge. 

"With reference to the report which the Roman soldiers were bribed (Matthew 28:12-14) to circulate concerning Christ's resurrection, "his disciples came by night and stole him away while we slept", Matthew Henry's Commentary under John 20:1-10, fittingly remarks, "The grave clothes in which Christ had been buried were found in very good order, which serves for an evidence that his body was not 'stolen away while men slept.' Robbers of tombs have been known to take away 'the clothes' and leave the body; but none ever took away 'the body' and left the clothes, especially when they were 'fine linen' and new:.Mark 15:46. Any one would rather choose to carry a dead body in its clothes than naked. Or if they that were supposed to have stolen it would have left the grave clothes behind, yet it cannot be supposed they would find leisure to 'fold up the linen'."
