Why is the resurrection important? As Paul says “And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins! If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.” We are to be pitied as fools. If Jesus did not rise, then we are worshiping a dead man. Randy Duncan provides a brief answer to this most important question.
