John 20:1-18

Jesus’ resurrection is the key to the Christian faith.  1.  Just as he said, Jesus rose from the dead.  We can be confident…that he will accomplish all he has promised.  2.  Jesus’ bodily resurrection shows us that the living Christ, not a false prophet is ruler of God’s eternal kingdom.  3.  We can be certain of our own resurrection because he was resurrected.  Death is not the end—there is future life.  4.  The divine power that brought Jesus back to life is now available to us to bring our spiritually dead selves back to life.  The resurrection is the basis for the church’s witness to the world.
