The Resurrection of Christ ... could it be true? Could someone really overcome death? The answer seems clear to me when we take a look at the facts. The resurrection of Christ is the essential foundation to our Christian faith. In the 15th Chapter of I Corinthians the Apostle Paul declares that Christ died for our sins, was buried and that he rose again the third day. In His resurrected state He was seen by Mary Magdalene and other women, the 12 apostles, by a great crowd of 500 witnesses and lastly by the Apostle Paul himself during his miraculous conversion.
