4 More Facts To Consider Jesus was prophesied to come to this world Written hundreds of years in advance His birth in Bethlehem Micah 5:2, Matt. 2:1-6 His family line 2 Samuel 7:12-17, Matt. 1:1 His death Psalm 22, Matt. 27, John 19 His resurrection from the dead Psalm 16, Acts 2 Isaiah 53 His universal dominion Isaiah 2:1-4, Luke 24:44- 48, Acts 2:1-41, 28:31, Colossians 1:13, 23 THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS IS THE ONLY SUFFICIENT EXPLANATION

5 More Details To Consider Jesus lived. Acts 2:22, extra-biblical references Jesus died. Centurion made sure John 19:31-37 Pilate made sure Mark 15:37-45 Jesus was buried. Joseph asked for the body, Nicodemus helped bury him with 100 lbs. of myrrh and aloes in linen graveclothes John 19: A new tomb (no other body within it). Hewn out of solid rock Mark 15:46. Sealed and guarded by Roman soldiers Matt. 27:62-66 Women took note of where and what had been done Mark 15:46

6 More Details To Consider Jesus’ tomb was empty the third day Luke 24:1, Stone was moved “up and away” John 20:1 Reaction of the guard Matthew 28:2-15 Not totally empty John 20:1-8 Do the math: orderly graveclothes plus 100 lbs. spices minus body equals resurrection Disciples saw Jesus alive that day 1 Cor. 15: witnesses! Fraud? Mass hallucination? Skeptical disciples now believe John 20:24-31

7 More Details To Consider Apostles of Christ began preaching the resurrection of Jesus. All were skeptical, now believe Luke 24:33-43 All fled when arrested Matt. 26:56 Peter denied Him three times Matt. 26:57-75 Bold before the same ones he feared two months earlier Acts 4:13 all but John killed for their faith Church grew in spite of persecution. Rev. 3:8-11 Saul persecuted the church then became most influential apostle Acts 9 You can add to this evidence by faith and obedience now
