The Greatest Story Ever Told. There are two days every year in the world when we are reminded that God become flesh and rose from the dead. Christmas and Easter may be full of commercialism but the testimony is still there… Christ Jesus was born of a virgin, and arose after His crucifixion a risen Saviour. Why? We’re reminded in 2 Cor 5:21 (KJV) “For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.” When the elders of Israel refused to accept who he was, they asked for a sign. Matt 12:38-40 (KJV) “Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Did they receive the sign when Christ arose? Matt 28:11-13 (KJV) “Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.” Instead of the truth, they decided to perpetuate a lie. At Easter, we emphasize the greatest story ever told in that it’s the only story that gives mankind hope and changes lives, that Christ arose and is the key to eternal life.
