Jews had prayed for Him, hoped for Him, looked for Him, and lived for Him for generations. And now the One who said He was the Messiah was dead, killed by the very ones who had anticipated His coming for so long. For His disciples, three years of following Christ ended in despair. Then they found the open tomb. Jesus was gone! He had risen from the dead! The Messiah was alive! But perhaps the victory of that long-ago resurrection has been blurred by the church's focus on the agonizing death of Christ on the cross, or the sadness of His mother, or the treachery of Judas. Dr. Boice's meditations on the resurrection will revive again for you the excitement of Jesus Christ's victorious rising from the dead. The Christ of the Empty Tomb presents the resurrection as a non-negotiable fact of history. It refutes arguments, explains apparent discrepancies, and will focus your thoughts on the real reason for the Easter celebration—death's ultimate defeat.
