Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” (Joh 11:25-26)
In this passage of Scripture, Jesus claims to be the Resurrection and the Life. The reason for this is that without Christ, there is no resurrection. Without Christ, there is no eternal life. Because Jesus IS life, death has no power over Him.
Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life. (Joh 5:24) All who accept Jesus as their Savior and Lord, pass from death into eternal life.
No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. (Joh 6:44) Jesus, the Resurrection, will raise up His followers at the end of time.
This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.” (Joh 6:50-51) In the ceremony of Communion, which remembers and honors Jesus’ sacrifice, we symbolically eat the Bread of Heaven, Jesus’ flesh. (Represented by bread or a small cracker.)
Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death. (Joh 8:51) Jesus powerful atoning blood covering each obedient believer will usher us into eternal life; we shall not see death.
And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. (Joh 10:28) Jesus says that we are safe in His hand, and no one has the power to take us out of His hand.
. . . and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses. (Act 3:15 ESV) In this verse, Jesus is called the “Author of life.”
For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. (Col 3:3-4) Upon accepting Jesus as our Savior and Lord, we become hidden with Christ in God; and immediately, we enter into life. This passage says that Christ is our life.
Let us appreciate and honor the quality and characteristics of the life that Jesus gives to us. Glory to God!
