|What Did Jesus Mean When He Said He Is The Resurrection And The Life? by FaithfulServant(m): 8:13pm On Mar 31, 2019|
Verse: John 11:25
Context: John 11:1-26
First you have to know what resurrection means. It means bringing someone who has been dead back to life.
You can see here that this verse is from the context of when Jesus lost his very close friend Lazarus the brother of Mary and Martha and eventually brought him back to life.
Since it involves death, what Jesus mean if you want to take it from the literal angle, Jesus mean only through Him can the dead come back to life. That is why it is wrong to hear some pastors after Christ brought someone back to life through them, ascribe the miracle to themselves because it is only Christ that can bring anyone back to life.
The other angle by which it can be understood is that those who are dead spiritually can get life again only through Jesus. The spiritually dead are those that do not have a spiritual life, materialistic (1 Timothy 5:6) and atheists. They are dead spiritually and can only get life again through Jesus.
Jesus further said those who believe in him though he was dead, yet he shall live and this means those are dead spiritually shall live again only if they believe and put faith in Jesus.
Another angle it can be understood is that those who believe in Him even though they die the physical death, they shall resurrect and live with God eternally in heaven.
Jesus further said in verse 26 that anyone who believe in him will never die which means he will never die spiritually and though he may die in his mortal body, his soul will live with God for ever in heaven.
