April 16, 2017


Just As He Said: His Word is True

6 He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen.  

Matthew 28:6


Matthew 17:22-23, 20:18-19, 26:31-32   (John 2:19 & 10:17-18)


39 But Jesus replied, “Only an evil, adulterous generation would demand a miraculous sign; but the only sign I will give them is the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish for three days and three nights, so will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights.  Matthew 12:39-40


Just As He Said:  We are Forgiven

3 I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. 4 He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said. 5 He was seen by Peter and then by the Twelve. 6 After that, he was seen by more than 500 of his followers at one time.
1 Corinthians 15:3-6


17 And if Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of your sins.  I Corinthians 15:17


25 He was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised to life to make us right with God.  Romans 4:25


Just As He Said:  No More Fear

5 Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!  …  10 Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t be afraid!  Matthew 28:5, 10
But in fact, Christ has been raised from the dead. He is the first of a great harvest of all who have died. 21 So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another man. 22 Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life.  

1 Corinthians 15:20-22


57 But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.   1 Corinthians 15:57


17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as if I were dead. But he laid his right hand on me and said, “Don’t be afraid! I am the First and the Last. 18 I am the living one. I died, but look—I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave.  Revelation 1:17-18


Just As He Said:  He is Alive With Us

9 And as they went, Jesus met them and greeted them.  Matthew 28:9


56 Anyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.  John 6:56


Just As He Said:  Check it Out

Come, see where his body was lying.  Matthew 28:6b


25 Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. 26 Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?”  

John 11:25-26
