“The apostles were witnesses of the resurrection of Jesus-but how! Why did Jesus himself not
appear after his resurrection to the unbelieving Jews? The apostles preached, not evidence proving the
miraculous fact of the resurrection, but a risen Savior: resurrection power was theirs, and the Spirit
convinced their hearers of that life in a risen Savior! Our faith is not to stand in the wisdom of men, but
in the power of God. When the word of the Lord comes to the soul, it brings its authority, power, and
attraction with it, and the response of the heart is, not What is this Book? but, Who art thou, Lord?
