The Crucifixion of Jesus was part of God’s plan from the very beginning of the birth of Jesus. The sin of mankind would require a sacrifice. The sinless life of Jesus was lived and given so mankind could receive salvation and eternal life in Heaven. The Resurrection of Christ is the foundation of our Christian faith. Without the resurrection, the belief in God’s saving Grace through Jesus is destroyed.
When Jesus rose from the dead, he confirmed His identity as the Son of God and His work of atonement, redemption, reconciliation, and salvation were proven. The resurrection was a real, physical raising of Jesus’ body from the dead

Mat 28:10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
