We need to be buried to be fully alive.
“God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life.” John 3:16 (NCV)
It's your last meal. What's on your plate?
The enemy has nothing on you. In Christ, you are victorious!
Did Jesus die to enslave you or to set you free?
Who will roll away the stone?
How does hope work in a world where headlines detail violent beheadings, Christian massacres, and rampant injustice?
Don't let Easter slip by without taking in the beauty of all that Jesus accomplished for you! Journey to the cross and to the empty tomb with these Scripture readings.
Do you believe that Jesus rose from the dead? What is the basis for that belief?
Did you know that the best historical evidence showing that the tomb of Jesus became empty under highly unusual circumstances came from a non-Christian source?
Did you know that the historical origin of Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead in 33 AD? The question is, what reasons do we have, in the 21st century, for thinking the resurrection actually happened, and why does it matter?
History shows that there was an explosion of Christianity across the Roman empire in the first century. This does not prove that Jesus rose from the dead, but if one wishes to deny it, then the skeptic is left having to explain this explosion of belief while, at the same time, denying that what they believed happened, actually happened.
