“Bearing false witness" in the Bible:
A. The enemies of Christ lied to discredit the resurrection eyewitnesses.
Their actions actually helped establish two precious truths:
(1) The location of Jesus' tomb (It was known.)
(2) The condition of Jesus' tomb (It was empty.)
B. The enemies of Christ lied to discredit an outspoken witness.
Two responses of those who can't handle the truth:
(1) They seek to silence its messengers.
(2) They have a change of heart or receive a new one.
