The First Easter

April 4, 2021

Bible Text: John 20:1-10a |

He is risen! He is risen indeed! All four of the gospel writers tell of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the centerpiece of the Christian faith. As the Apostle Paul writes in the great resurrection chapter (I Corinthians 15), if Christ has not risen from the dead, then our faith is futile, we are still in our sins, and we, above all the people in the world, are to be the most pitied. But Jesus HAS risen from the dead and therefore our faith is not futile, we are delivered from our sin, and we are the most blessed people in all the world! This morning we look at John’s record of the resurrection and why he records what he records.
