Following Jesus’ Ascension it became necessary for the disciples to find someone to take the place vacated by Judas. Of primary importance was that the replacement must “become with us a witness to His resurrection.”
Jesus’ resurrection is God’s guarantee that our salvation is complete and that our own resurrection to life eternal is assured. The Lord wants us to have that assurance. He has provided this united witness beginning with His apostles down through the generations to us. He continues to provide this united witness through us into the future generations to come.
