Sermon Theme: There is sufficient evidence in Jesus’ resurrection to persuade belief in the gospel.

Three facts about the resurrection:

1) Was a work of God

2) Validated statements previously made by Jesus

3) Physically verified – the tomb was empty

Three implications of the resurrection:

1. Jesus’ death was not the end of the story

2. The Jesus who rose is the same Jesus who died

3. You can fully trust the promise of the resurrection
     even if you do not fully understand all that took place  

Six proof statements from the resurrection:

  • God has power over life and death
  • Jesus’ death was God’s plan, not man’s
  • Man would not have the last word about Jesus
  • Jesus died to carry out God’s plan for redeeming souls
  • God keeps His promises
  • God loves people (so much that He sent Jesus to die for them)
  • One promise that flows from the resurrection:
  • The good news about Jesus resurrection promises hope to all who will receive it by faith
