Who raised Christ from the dead?

Romans 10:9 God
Romans 6:4 The Father
John 2:19-24 Jesus
Romans 8:11 Holy Spirit

I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades. Revelation 1:18

When did Jesus have the keys to death and hades?

No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. John 10:18

False Religion

Jesus' description of false religion: "You do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe. You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life."

“I do not receive honor from men. But I know you, that you do not have the love of God in you. I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive. How can you believe, who receive honor from one another, and do not seek the honor that comes from the only God?" -- John 5:38-44

"Two thousand years later and we still have not figured it out. This scathing rebuke is not limited to the legalists of 2000 years ago. Using the New Testament to design some man-made system of religion is idolatry! Jesus is at the center of all scripture." --Phil Garner

"You pore over the Scriptures because you think you have eternal life in them, yet they testify about Me." (John 5:39 HCSB)
