This article examines the key issues relevant to the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The author focuses on the widely accepted story of the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. The author observes that the human perception is coextensive with the material universe and its limits are pre-set. One has no real choices, only acknowledgments to make as what one calls truth. Judgments are irresponsible and fictitious, because they can really affect nothing. Human existence pales to an endless cycle of repetitions. The author argues that it was necessary that Jesus die and rise again alive in his body from his grave.
