The Apostle Peter preaching on the day of Pentecost of the risen Savior, says,
“God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.”
And He speaks of Him as the anointed One, exalted at God’s right hand. The
Gospel is the Gospel of the Risen Christ. There would be no Gospel for sinners if
Christ had not been raised. So the apostle says, “If Christ be not raised, your faith
is vain; ye are yet in your sins” (1 Cor. 15:17).
