To those who are not Christians, it can seem that those who follow Christ are obsessed with His death. I don't deny that. The same can be said for His resurrection. One reason is because the Bible mentions them extremely often. For example, in Romans chapter five the apostle Paul refers to it three times in less than ten verses. In it, he connects God's love for us with Jesus' death.

Jesus’ Resurrection and Our Justification, As Taught in the Book of Romans
Although the concept of a resurrection is not natural, it is spoken of repeatedly in the New Testament, and is often connected with Jesus Christ. Many of the letters explicitly mention it. All the Gospel accounts share testimonies of the Lord after He rose from the dead. As we know, the apostle Paul used Christ's Resurrection in many of his teachings too. One place where he does so is at the end of the fourth chapter of Romans.

One of the most famous verses in the Bible is Romans 3:23. As many of us know, it teaches that we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. As we go through the book of Romans together, I felt that it was necessary for us to study this humbling truth, and the justification that is available through Christ.
How the First Chapter of Mark Presents Jesus as a Prophet, Healer, Son of God, and More
It is important to remember all the different aspects of Jesus. Not just the ones with which we are comfortable. If we recognize some aspects of Him, but deny others, then we run the risk of admiring a false Jesus. We need to guard ourselves against that possibility. Please join me as we study through this great chapter and see the many impressive claims it makes about Jesus Christ.
