So crucial is the resurrection…

The resurrection with the incarnation and atonement is planted at the very heart of the gospel and plan of redemption. So crucial is the resurrection to the writers of the New Testament that Peter attributes all the blessings of redemption to it (1 Peter 1:3); Paul avows that without it the work of Christ is undone (1 Corinthians 15:7), and that the confession of the resurrection is integral to salvation (Romans 10:9-10).

Bernard Ramm, quoted in Jesus in An Age of Controversy by Douglas Groothuis, p. 273
