Easter says you can put Truth in the grave but it won’t stay there!“But God raised Him from the dead, freeing Him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on Him.” -Acts 2:24
Eight Truths about the Resurrection:
1. Jesus’ grave was empty. No one doubts this!
2. Women discovered the empty tomb. - There were eyewitnesses!
3. The site of Jesus’ tomb was known. - It was public knowledge!
4. Nobody ever claimed the tomb still contained Jesus’ body.
- Conspiracy theories are made up!
5. The resurrection was the church’s proclamation from the beginning. - Changed lives are proof! (Cowards become bold evangelists)
6. The appearances of Jesus. - Over 500 people saw Him!
7. Skeptics were converted. - Thomas and Jesus’ brothers just to name a few.
8. The miraculous emergence of the church. - The first 50 years of the church saw unprecedented growth!
May we take the Truth of the Resurrection and apply them to our lives. Amen?
