Why do Christians celebrate the resurrection of Christ?
Because of the resurrection of Christ Jesus, Christian's have assurance of the resurrection of all persons-some to salvation; some to perdition. That is God's ultimate answer to the problem of death. Easter is one of Christianity's oldest festivals, except for the weekly Sunday celebration. Celebrating Christ Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection was well established in most churches by A.D. 100.

Before Adam and Eve founded a world of mankind by having children, Jehovah God determined that his only-begotten Son would be the one to redeem the human race from ensla…vement to sin and death. (Compare Genesis 3:15; 4:1, 2; Luke 11:49-51.) With the coming of the Messiah, the Jewish system of things, including its priesthood, sacrifices and temple services, entered its last days. Messiah's arrival did mark the start of a new epoch in human history. Therefore, the apostle Peter spoke of Christ's being "made manifest at the end of the times." But why did the apostle say that God's Son was made manifest "for the sake of you who through him are believers in God"? Before Jesus came to the earth, no one could take advantage of the redemptive work that he would accomplish. Only in the first century could believers start doing so. By exercising faith in the Christ, these believers were also putting faith in the Father, the One who had sent the Son to this earth. (John 17:21) Furthermore, as Peter stated, what Jehovah God did for his Son-resurrecting him and giving him "glory" by exalting him to his own right hand-provides sound reason for putting our faith and hope in the Almighty. How so? Just as the Most High raised his Son, he can also resurrect others of his servants. Since Jesus Christ was raised to immortal heavenly life, his first-century disciples could be sure that they, too, would share with him in celestial glory. The resurrection of God's Son stands as an unchangeable guarantee that humans who are sleeping in death will be raised to life.-1 Corinthians 15:12-22. That is why the fact of Jesus' resurrection needed to be well established, and it was. There were upward of 500 disciples who saw the resurrected Son of God. (1 Corinthians 15:6)
there are no disadvantages....by dying on the cross, Jesus made it so that we could be forgiven of all our sins and have a chance at spending eternal life in Heaven.
Only Luke's Gospel and Acts of the Apostles tell us how long Jesus was on earth after his resurrection: Luke 24:50-51 tells us that Jesus led the disciples out towards … Bethany on the evening of his resurrection, and was taken bodily up into heaven. In this case, he was on earth less than one day after his resurrection. He commanded the disciples to remain in Jerusalem until they had received the power from on high. Acts 1:1-9, by the same author but written some time after Luke's Gospel, tells us that the risen Jesus was on earth for forty days and was seen by many. Jesus commanded the disciples to remain in Jerusalem until they had received the the power of the Holy Spirit, and was then taken bodily up into heaven.
The first person to come to the tomb was Mary Magdalene.
The earliest manuscripts of Mark's Gospel end at verse 16:8, with the young man saying that Jesus is risen, and the women fleeing in terror, telling no one. Clearly the resurr…ection is important, because the "Long Ending" (verses 16:9-25) was added much later to provide resurrection appearances. Although each gospel provides quite different accounts of just what happened after the resurrection of Jesus, Christians believe that the resurrection means that Jesus is the Son of God.
From Matthew 27: 51At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. 52The tombs broke open and the bodies of m…any holy people who had died were raised to life. 53They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people. This particular fact isn't mentioned in any other gospels so there isn't a number.
Certainly we are thankful that Jehovah resurrected him, but in fact the only thing he commanded his followers to observe was his death. (Luke 22:17-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)… It is interesting that there is no example among the first century Christians of them commemorating either the birth or the resurrection of Jesus, but only his death as he commanded.
The ultimate reason for the resurrection of Jesus is to occupy the throne of "heaven". A sacrificial lamb does not need to be resurrected for the atonement to suff…ice. Pontius Pilate asked Jesus if he was indeed a king. Jesus' answer to Pilate gives us a very important clue; "My kingdom is not of this world". If Jesus was the "son" of the creator of all the universe, this would not be a truthful answer. Another important clue is the prayer Jesus taught us to pray. "Our Father who is in heaven... your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven..." . The coronation of Jesus has already occurred. His kingdom is approaching [ in every sense] and the two kingdoms will become as one. There is a war looming which will be won by the forces of "heaven". [ H.A.A.R.P. will fail!]
The resurrection of Jesus is celebrated by Christians on Easter Sunday, the date of which varies each year.
Commonly it is said that after his resurrection he was taken into the heaven and he stood on the right side of his father on the 40th day...so i think 40 days. !
Yes they do. On Easter He rose from the .

Because that is the reason he came here. Christ was sent to 'save' us from our sins, the reward for which is our own physical and spiritual death, thanks to the mess we have m…ade on this planet. Jesus' resurrection is central to the Christian faith. Without it the crucifixion would be the end of a failed mission. Jesus would have been recognised as a failed prophet (despite his miracles) and soon forgotten. However, he predicted his own resurrection, and it became the ultimate miracle. We must not confuse resurrection with resuscitation of a corpse. He performed this miracle many times (eg raising Lazarus, raising Jairus' daughter) but after their raising they once more died later on. Resurrection means the raising to a new form of life; Jesus' resurrection body was material - it could be touched, he ate, he walked and so on... but it could also materialise and dematerialise at will. Being the first to be raised from death into his resurrection body, he made it clear that he had conquered death for good, and that, believing in him we could do the same through his name, and that, one day too we would be with him in heaven. Paul makes it clear in his first letter to the Christians at Corinth : For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. He also tells us that if the Resurrection did not happen, then Christianity is all in vain and Christians are to be pitied as gullible fools. But as it did happen, then we have a wonderful relationship with God restored, and the gateway to heaven is opened. The resurrection is central then to the Christian faith. And it happened. Any scepticism will soon be dispelled (if you are sceptical about it) if you read Frank Morrison's 'Who moved the Stone?' available still from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Waterstones etc. Morrison was an atheist who did not believe in the resurrection, and decided to write a book to prove it didn't happen, gathering evidence to fuel his belief. However as the evidence was assembled he realised that he was wrong, and he ended up becoming converted and realising just how central the fact of the resurrection was to Christian belief. Answer The resurrection was important because it made the religion more marketable. Islam, which originated from the same Abrahamic theology, disputes the fallacy of resurrection. It was emperor Constantine and his cunning advisors who were responsible for concocting the resurrection fallacy. They also conveniently omitted the facts about the period in India and Tibet, from the age of approximately thirteen to the age of twenty-five. These actions were done to turn Christ into a God after he was murdered by the same clergy.
The feast of the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ is popularly known as "Easter Sunday". It is a movable feast, meaning Easter call fall on any Sunday between March… 22 and April 25th in the Roman rite (other Eastern rites have a different range) as the feast follows a lunar calendar.
In The Bible
None. It only offers hope for every person. Jesus is a historical character who did truly resurrect, which gives every one hope and the only logical solution to the meanin…g of life. There is more historical evidence that Jesus existed, than there is for Julius Caesar. He is the way the truth and the life and only in him we can find eternal satisfaction.
In Jesus Christ
The Bible tells us that Jesus was resurrected on the third day after his his death. This was proved several times by Jesus revealing himself to his followers on different …occasions after his death. One in particular can be found at 1 Corinthians 15:6 where there were more than 500 witnesses present .
