UNMOVABLE Be Totally Satisfied With The Biblical Record Of The Resurrection Of Jesus Christ
UNMOVABLE 1 Corinthians 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
UNMOVABLE 1 Corinthians 15:12-19 12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
UNMOVABLE 1 Corinthians 15:12-19 13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
UNMOVABLE 1 Corinthians 15:12-19 14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
UNMOVABLE 1 Corinthians 15:12-19 15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
UNMOVABLE 1 Corinthians 15:12-19 16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
UNMOVABLE 1 Corinthians 15:12-19 17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
UNMOVABLE 1 Corinthians 15:12-19 18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
UNMOVABLE 1 Corinthians 15:12-19 19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
UNMOVABLE Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
UNMOVABLE The Tomb Was Empty! Nobody Challenged That It Was Empty, But Why? The Tomb Was Empty! Nobody Challenged That It Was Empty, But Why?
UNMOVABLE Both The Christians And Jews Alike Knew Where The Tomb Was It Could Have Been Easily Checked Out Both The Christians And Jews Alike Knew Where The Tomb Was It Could Have Been Easily Checked Out
UNMOVABLE The Roman Authorities And The Jewish Leaders Never Claimed The Tomb Still Contained Jesus’ Body
UNMOVABLE The Jewish Leaders Would Have Said It, But Instead They Claimed That Someone Must Have Stolen The Body
UNMOVABLE JESUS WAS SEEN ALIVE 1 Corinthians 15:4-8 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
UNMOVABLE 1 Corinthians 15:4-8 5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: JESUS WAS SEEN ALIVE
UNMOVABLE 1 Corinthians 15:4-8 6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. JESUS WAS SEEN ALIVE
UNMOVABLE 1 Corinthians 15:4-8 7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. 8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. JESUS WAS SEEN ALIVE
UNMOVABLE JESUS WAS SEEN ALIVE This didn’t develop over years of mythology
UNMOVABLE JESUS WAS SEEN ALIVE This began being proclaimed as the ‘central message’ of the early Church from the very beginning
UNMOVABLE JESUS WAS SEEN ALIVE 1 Corinthians 15 names specific individuals who encountered the Risen Christ!
UNMOVABLE JESUS WAS SEEN ALIVE Paul challenges readers of the Corinthian letter to talk to these people themselves as they were still alive!
UNMOVABLE JESUS WAS SEEN ALIVE The book of Acts, as well as the four Gospels, describe in detail the numerous encounters that people had with the Risen Christ!
UNMOVABLE The Disciples were in a unique position to know if the Resurrection really happened PERSONAL LIFE CHANGES
UNMOVABLE Each and every Disciple went to their deaths proclaiming “It’s True!” PERSONAL LIFE CHANGES
UNMOVABLE Within three weeks of the Crucifixion, thousands of Jews began abandoning key religious beliefs to follow Jesus Christ as their Lord and Messiah PERSONAL LIFE CHANGES
UNMOVABLE They were ostracized, persecuted and killed for their decisions PERSONAL LIFE CHANGES
UNMOVABLE They also knew they would be damned for all eternity if they were wrong! PERSONAL LIFE CHANGES
UNMOVABLE The emergence of the Church in spite of brutal Roman persecution, ripped a great hole in history that can only be explained by a commitment to the Risen Lord Jesus Christ! PERSONAL LIFE CHANGES
UNMOVABLE No other event in history has been so scrutinized, criticized and demonized, yet millions and millions continue to place their faith and confidence in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, radically changing their lives, year after year, after year! PERSONAL LIFE CHANGES
ABOUNDING 1 Corinthians 15:55-57 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
ABOUNDING What I Do Here Matters For All Eternity
ABOUNDING I Am Determined To Make A Difference For The Glory Of God Because That’s My Destiny
