Jesus Christ is the lynchpin of God’s plan to save all men who choose life over death. As such, he had to step into the abyss of death and trust God to raise him to everlasting life. Jesus based his trust upon the written revelation of the Old Testament, where he learned who he was, what his mission was, and what he would receive for carrying it out. Because Jesus faced and conquered death, He will one day raise from death unto life all those who have believed in him as the Redeemer of mankind. In the meantime, he is the Head of a worldwide Body of believers, each equipped to leave an impact similar to his own.
