Question
Dear John

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resurrection_of_Jesus

This are my views on Resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ.

I have 100 % faith in Resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ because Jesus was the Son of God.

"On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures"

Do you agree with my views ?

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Yes but with some variation.  In actuality, there is a small misinterpretation here but it doesn't require any change in belief or anything.  Jesus, spent three days in Hades announcing to those who have died that his mission was completed and to save them from damnation.  Upon doing so, he returned from below to announce the completion of his mission on earth.  Hence the term, "raised from the dead" actually meant to return to the surface from Hades (the place of the dead).  If you remember correctly, he told one of the other men hangin on a neighboring cross "Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise."   ...Hence, he actually arose from "death" that very same day.
