We don’t believe just because “the Bible told me”
We believe the true, factual, eyewitness accounts
Saul (Paul) was a “fully devoted to God” Pharisee
Paul hated Jesus and his followers (believed them to be heretics)
End of the “Jesus story” comes as a complete shock
CONTEXT: First-century Jews waiting for arrival of their Messiah/Savior
They believed their savior would be a conquering King
Religious leaders realized Jesus was gaining too much influence over the crowds
If you write an account decades later of an event, how would you make yourself look in the
story?
All followers of Jesus presented as scared, insecure and concerned for themselves
Followers of Jesus presented as cowards
If disciples weren't willing to die with or for Jesus while he was alive, why risk their lives after
Jesus died?
Not one person in the Gospel narratives expected a resurrection
Question: WHO KNEW there would be no body?
Answer: Nobody knew
The reason we believe: Jesus rose from the dead and seen by eyewitnesses who proclaimed
the message
SIGNIFICANCE OF EASTER STORY: Your faith is not in vain
SIGNIFICANCE OF EASTER STORY: Your faithfulness is not in vain
SIGNIFICANCE OF EASTER STORY: Your consideration of becoming a Christian is not in
vain
