Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

October 3 - Evening

"Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives and believes in me
will never die. Do you believe this?' ”
- John 11:25

Jesus Is the Resurrection    

In the verse above, John 11:25, Jesus makes the fifth of his seven “I am” statements.

  1. “I am the bread of life.” – John 6:35
  2. “I am the light of the world.” – John 8:12
  3. “I am the gate.” – John 10:9
  4. “I am the good shepherd.” – John 10:11
  5. “I am the resurrection and the life.” – John 11:25
  6. “I am the way, and the truth and the life.” – John 14:6
  7. “I am the vine.” – John 15:5

Jesus is speaking to Martha (Mary and Lazarus’ sister). He has just told her:

“Your brother will rise again.” (John 11:24)

To this Martha expressed her faith in the coming day in the distant eschatological future when, according to Jewish belief, the righteous dead Jews would be resurrected into the Kingdom of God.  She said:

            “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.”

For this apparently great confession of faith and expression of trust in God based on a correct, orthodox doctrinal understanding Martha is corrected by the Lord.  Jesus says:

            “I am the resurrection and the life!”

The resurrection and the life is not a day, nor are we waiting for it to be available in the future as if it were some computer update or a new upgrade released by Apple. Jesus corrects the focus of her doctrinal understanding by saying: “The resurrection is not a day or a time or a place or an event, because, like life itself, the resurrection is a person, a God, a divine essence. The resurrection is
me, Jesus!”

This is a radical insertion of thought to most people’s theology, because we tend to like systems, dates, tensions, contrasts and organization. Independent of time, days, places, systems or
doctrinal statements is Jesus Christ. He is the essence of life. He is the resurrection.
So, where Jesus goes, so goes the resurrection.

Fortunately, for Martha and Mary, the Resurrection was standing in front of their brother’s tomb.
Jesus doesn’t have the power of life. Jesus is life! Jesus doesn’t merely have power to raise the
dead. Jesus is the resurrection. If you have Jesus, you have life. If you have Jesus, you have resurrection. We are not waiting for a day. Instead, we are waiting for Jesus!

  Christian Quote from Church History

Suffering overcomes the mind's inertia, develops
the thinking powers, opens
up a new world, and drives
the soul to action.”
– Antony Harrison Evans



Something to Ponder??

The Bible refers to 18 books that no longer exist as far as we know, including:

- “Records of Nathan”
- "Records of Gad”
- “Prophecy of Ahijah”
- "Book of Wars of the Lord”
- “Visions of Iddo the Seer”
- "Annotations on the
Book of the Kings.”

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information



Ado (Gr) - Sing (Eng) - the Greek word ado is used five times in the New Testament.
Each time it is translated as singing prasises to God
(Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16; Revelation 5:9; 14:3; 15:3)

  The Tel el-Amarna Tablets from 1380 BC where found in Egypt in 1887. Among the 350 tablets written in cuneiform were letters from Hazor, Gezer, Megiddo, Lachish and Shechem. The letters are written by the Canaanite leaders who plead for help from Pharaoh because the land of Canaan was being overrun by an invading group of people they called the "Habiru.” In Genesis 14:13 Abraham was called a "Hebrew" and according to the biblical account his descendants began invading the land of Canaan in 1400 BC the same time (1380 BC) that the Canaanites were being overrun by the "Habiru." In these letters Jerusalem is called "Uru-Salim."

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I understand that Jesus is life?
He does not merely possess life or have more life than others.
Jesus is Life.
I will consider Jesus to be the only, and final source, of life.
Jesus is the only "door" and "way" to God.
  "The lips of the righteous know what is fitting, but the mouth of the wicked only what is perverse."
- Proverbs 10:32
