1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. Believe!

2 Reasons to believe in a literal resurrection 1.Is it possible that Jesus didn’t really die? – Having been flogged by the Roman soldiers… – Having been crucified… – Having been declared dead by the executioners… – Having been prepared for burial by Joseph and Nicodemus… – Having been given up as dead by his friends… I think we can be pretty sure he was actually DEAD!
