Sermon Notes

Have you ever considered the empty tomb? The claims found in the Bible that Jesus died and rose again on the third day just as He said He would?
The Gospel writers all testify to the fact that Jesus truly died on a cross, was placed inside of a tomb, and that on the third day He rose again. So what do you do with such a claim? Have you ever considered the origin of the Disciples belief? This was a defeated and frightened group of men and women, hiding together behind locked doors… yet just fifty days after Jesus rose from the grave, these men were out in the streets of Jerusalem proclaiming that Jesus was alive. So why the change of heart and attitude? In the following message by Pastor Anton he encourages us to do the rigorous investigation of the evidence and come to a conclusion based on the findings. We invite you to turn in your Bible to John 2o and download the teaching notes as you prepare to listen to the following message. We hope and trust that you will be encouraged.
