I AM the Resurrection

I AM the Resurrection

I Am the Resurrection and the Life
He who believes in Me will live even if He dies.

John 11:25 – Jesus said to Martha, “I am the Resurrection and the Life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.”

The difference between this I Am the Resurrection Art Card and the same card in the I AMs of Jesus Art Card Collection, is that the entire Resurrection story is included on the inside of the card, along with a greeting. (Please see the images at the end of this blog.)

The greeting on the inside says,
“Celebrating His risen life with you”

The text on the back of the card is:
John 11:25 – Jesus said to Martha, “I am the Resurrection and the Life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.”

Matthew 28:5-6 – The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said.”

The hope of God’s people culminated in the resurrection of Jesus Christ!

Job 19:25-26 – As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last He will take His stand on the earth. Even after my skin is destroyed, yet from my flesh I shall see God.

Ezekiel 37:14a – The Lord declares, “I will put My Spirit within you and you will come to life…”

The Apostles exulted in the resurrection!
1 Peter 1:3 – Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

Ephesians 2:4-6 – But God being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us... made us alive together with Christ and raised us up with Him...”

Resurrection is the Lord’s gift to all who receive Him. It is foreshadowed in His creation in every bud and blossom of spring!

The Resurrection story on the inside of the card is a color-coded merging of the accounts from the four Gospels as follows:

Matthew 28:1-10; Mark 16:1-8Luke 24:1-12; and John 20:1-10

Now when the Sabbath was over on the first day of the week at dawn while it was still dark when the sun had risen [the time must have spanned from dawn until the sun rose], Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome came to the tomb bringing the spices they had prepared so they might anoint Him. They were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?”

Looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away, although it was extremely large.  Behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat on it. And his appearance was like lightning and his clothing dazzling as white as snow. The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men. [Luke’s account mentions two men in dazzling clothing.]

And as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid for I know that you are looking for Jesus the Nazarene who has been crucified. Why do you seek the living One among the dead? He is not here for He has risen just as He said. Behold, here is the place where they laid Him.” When they entered the tomb, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.

“Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee, saying that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and the third day rise again. Go quickly and tell His disciples and Peter that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see Him just as He told you.”

They remembered His words and fled from the tomb quickly with fear and great joy for trembling and astonishment had gripped them, and they reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest, to Simon Peter and the other disciple whom Jesus loved.”

Now they were Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James and also the other women with them were telling these things to the apostles. But these words appeared to them as nonsense, and they would not believe them.

But Peter and the other disciple [John] went forth and ran to the tomb. The two were running together, and the other disciple [John] ran ahead faster than Peter and came to the tomb first and, stooping and looking in, he saw the linen wrappings lying there, but he did not go in. And Peter also came, following him, and entered the tomb; and he saw the linen wrappings lying there and the facecloth which had been on His head, not lying with the linen wrappings, but rolled up in a place by itself. So the other disciple [John] who had first come to the tomb then also entered, and he saw and believed. For as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.  

So the disciples went away to their own homes, marveling at what had happened.
