Believing without Seeing
Main Point: Jesus, the Christ, has overcome death for us: We must believe & embrace Him - we receive forgiveness of our sins and new life in Him.
1. What proof/evidence is there that He rose from the dead?
a. An empty tomb: verses 1-9
*Fake News - Matthew 28:12-15
b. Numerous eyewitnesses: verses 14-20
I Corinthians 15:3-6 Apostle Paul - 500 witnesses – many of whom were killed for their testimony
c. A convinced Skeptic: verses 24-29 Thomas –
Jesus accommodates him – He will prove himself to you!
2. There are those here today who have encountered the living, resurrected Christ whose lives have been transformed!
3. If Jesus is who He claimed to be – the ‘Risen Christ, the Son of God’,’ what must response be?
*We must receive Him into our lives as the living Christ, and live our lives for Him as our Lord, our Master. .
