Jesus’ resurrection is not an example of God attempting to excite the emotions of His followers.
The bodily resurrection of Jesus relieved doubts and brought much-needed clarity to the things He had been teaching.
Jesus attempted to prepare His disciples for His imminent sacrifice and substitutional death.
Jesus worked to convince the disciples that His death was necessary but they intended to persuade Him to stay away from Jerusalem and avoid those who would seek to persecute and kill Him.
After the Resurrection, folks had confirmation that Jesus’ substitutional death on the cross had been God’s plan from the very beginning, demonstrating His determination to redeem us from the tyranny and waste of sin.
