Who brought Christ back from the dead?

Full Question

Who brought Christ back from the dead? Did Jesus cause himself to rise, or did God the Father raise him up?

Answer

All three Persons of the Trinity cooperated in bringing Jesus back from the dead. You can see this in a variety of passages. Acts 2:24, 3:15, and 4:10 stress the role of God the Father in the Resurrection, John 10:18 stresses Christ’s role, and Romans 1:3 stresses the role of the Holy Spirit.

This reflects the teaching that all three Persons of the Trinity cooperate in any divine action outside the Godhead, as shown in the Creation of the world (Gn 1:1-2:4, Ps 33:6, Jn 1:3, Acts 17:24) and the birth of Christ (Lk 1:35, Jn 5:36, 6:38).

    There is no Trinity!! Isaiah 9:6 is just one of many Scriptures that plainly state otherwise.. Its a prophecy given about Jesus being born and says He will be called The Everlasting FATHER..

      David, my suggestion would be that you consider carefully Jesus’ own prayers (both who is addressed and for what purpose).

      Consider firstly, for example, John 17:1–12 (and following)

      After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed:
      “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you.
      For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

      I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do.
      And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.

      “I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me.

      I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours.
      All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them.
      I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.

      Secondly, consider the ‘name’ he called for people to be baptised into (Matt 28:18–20):

      All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

      Finally, consider carefully John the Baptist’s testimony about him (John 3:31–36):

      “The one who comes from above is above all; the one who is from the earth belongs to the earth, and speaks as one from the earth. The one who comes from heaven is above all. He testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony. Whoever has accepted it has certified that God is truthful. For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit. The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.”

    Reference correction: “Romans 1:3 stresses the role of the Holy Spirit” should read “Romans 1:4 stresses the role of the Holy Spirit.”
