As a teenager and a new Christian, I loved the musical Jesus Christ Superstar. I loved Jesus, and I loved music, so what’s not to love about a Jesus-themed musical? When I excitedly told my youth pastor how amazing JCS was, I remember being confused when he laughed and said, “Yeah, except for the whole ‘no resurrection’ part.”
Is the resurrection important to the gospel?
Would it have mattered if Jesus hadn’t risen from the dead?
