"And that he was buried, and that he rose again on the third day according to the scriptures."
The Biible says that, " If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shall believe in thine heart that God raised him fro m the death, thou shall be saved."
In order to be saved, we have to believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. If the instructor of a class says that in order to pass the course, we have to read the notes and the text book, and listen to him as well, definitely we will all do it, becaues we want to pass the course. In the same way, if we want to be saved, we have to to what God is telling us through his word, the bible.

However, the question is how is the resurrection of Christ going to save us?
Lets look at some few Bible passages.
"Come and let us return unto the Lord for he hath torn, and he will heal us; He hath smitten and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us, in the third day He will raise us , and we will live in His sight."
"For if we are planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be in the likeness of his resurrection."
"Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him, knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death has no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once, but in that he lives he lives unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but live unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let no sin therefore reign in your mortal body that ye may obey it in the lust thereof."
"But now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel."
"That I may know him and the power of his resurrection being made comformable unto death; if by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead."

In conclusion by we wanting to attain the resurrection of the dead, which we are assured of by the resurrection of Christ, we chose to believe the gospel.
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time."
