Fame- “Sic Transit Gloria Mundi”- Thomas a Kempis Exodus 34:29 II Corinthians 3:7 Creation-Romans 1:25 Isaiah 40:8 Israel in the desert Exodus 16:7 Raising Lazarus from the dead John 11:40 Even greater glory! Romans 6:4
A place of mourning and dispair-v.1 A “watch” of Roman soldiers Matthew 27:62-66 Covered by a very large stone Matthew 27:59-61 A Roman government seal Matthew 27:66
The suffering and death of Jesus Darkness and an earthquake on the day Jesus died –Matthew 27:45,51 One of their own commanders declaring Jesus to be “Son of God” Matthew 27:54 Strictly warned to guard his body Matthew 27:65-66
A second earthquake An angel descends from heaven, appearance of lighting, dressed in white, rolls back the stone and sits on it! The guards so frightened they trembled and froze like dead men
They ran! They went to tell the High Priest what had happened
Believe and repent- Romans 10:9 Acts 16:31- Philippian jailer Harden your heart- Daniel 7:13 Mark 14:62 Evidence doesn’t matter Luke 16:31
Jesus’ body was never found Stealing the body highly unlikely! The obvious change in the disciples Mark 14:66-72 Acts 4: Eye witness accounts from both friends and enemies of Jesus (over 500!). I Corinthians 15:3-9
Places Jesus and His teachings on a different level than other great religious teachers/leaders It confirms the truth of Jesus teachings-”Just like he said” v.6 Mark 8:31;9:30-32;10:32-34 Without the resurrection our faith is worthless I Corinthians 15:17 He literally rose from the dead! I Corinthians 15:20 The First Fruit of the resurrection Leviticus 23:12-13 Ephesians 4:8 John 11:25 Not just future hope but power for today! Ephesians 1:19-20 Colossians 1:20 Christ in you!
May we see His Glory Today! Ephesians 1:18 Go and Tell!
