The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ together form the centerpiece of Christianity. The Apostle Paul reminds the believers in Corinth that at the center of the Gospel he preached are two truths—that Jesus Christ was crucified for sins and that he rose from the dead. Apart from his death for our sin, we continue to bear our guilt and face God’s wrath. Apart from his resurrection, we must conclude that Jesus is under God’s wrath, leaving us without a Savior and most to be pitied of all people.
Shortly after its initial publication, Joshua Otte recorded it on his project “Already But Not Yet,” which is graciously providing as a free download. (Please consider supporting Joshua by purchasing and downloading the entire album.)
