The final and greatest proof of Christ's absolute uniqueness is His resurrection. Not only did Christ die precisely at the time of His choosing, but He rose on the third day by His own power. Christ predicted this when He said that He had the power to lay His life down and He had the power to take it up again (John 10:17-18). After three days Christ arose from the dead. Christians worship a “living” Lord. All other religious founders and leaders (e.g. Muhammad, Shankara, and Budda) are dead. In most cases their tombs are known and honored. Only the tomb of Christ was occupied for just three days, and thereafter it was empty forever!

Christ alone conquered death, which clearly shows that Christ is exactly who He said He was, “the resurrection and the life.” It is Christ's resurrection that gives Christians hope in life, the assurance that they have nothing to fear from death, and the assurance that they will see Christ again after their death.
