In there fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, "Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he has risen!"
How do we know that Jesus resurrected?
First, we know that Jesus is risen based on the first-hand experience that we have with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the person who testifies Jesus's resurrection. He is the Spirit of the Truth and we experience the presence of the resurrected Jesus when we have the presence of the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Lord.
Second, we know that Jesus is risen, because no one is dead when he or she is in front of God. To God, everyone is risen. Everyone. Because God is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. We must know this. Life on earth is not the only life. Life continues even after death because we are surrounded by God, worshiping God, even after death. If we are going to worship God, are we going to be considered dead? No.
Jesus resurrected in his spiritual body, so that the disciples could touch him and talk with him. The reason for his bodily resurrection was for the disciples and us to believe in the resurrection. Because we just wouldn't understand the essential character of ourselves. We were created to have eternal fellowship with God, and physical death is just a transition we experience in the everlasting journey of fellowship with God.
We celebrate Easter to remember this fact. Jesus is alive and so are we!
