The Resurrection in First Century Sermons

After Christ’s resurrection and before His ascension He gave a clear commission to his followers, He said, “And ye shall be witnesses unto me . . .” The book of Acts is a record of how the disciples witnessed and testified to others about Jesus Christ.  The resurrection of Christ was central in their testimony and is a major point in the recorded sermons in the book of Acts.

Acts 1:22 “ . . . to be a witness with us of his resurrection.”
