The Meaning & Implications of the Resurrection

One of my favorite books is Raised with Christ: How the Resurrection Changes Everything by Adrian Warnock.  The main reason I like it is because there are few books like it.  There is plenty, and rightfully so, on the cross and the atonement.  But the resurrection is as central to Christianity as the cross.  After all, did Paul say that unless Christ is raised from the dead, our faith is in vain?  We are still in our sin?  And if so, then why don't more Christians talk about the resurrection?  Isn't Easter on the day Christ was raised from the dead?  Don't we worship every Sunday because that is the day Christ was raised?

Recently on his website, Warnock posted this video back from when he was still promoting the book following its release.  It is a good interview and summarizes the argument and purpose of the book.  What I want us to gain from it is the meaning and implications of the resurrection.  Below, Warnock and Justin Taylor lay out why the resurrection is necessary, how it affirms our salvation, and how it is practical for our everyday lives.
