Easter in Lake Country 2021 - "Seeing is Believing"
Series: Easter in Lake Country 2021
The New Testament eye witnesses of the resurrection tell the Easter story in a way that invites critical thinking. In fact, they practically beg the reader to be skeptical and to critically analyze the events of Easter Sunday. As Paul said, “If Christ has not been raised, our teaching is useless and so is your faith.” John accomplishes this by recording how three different people “saw” the events of Easter. But there was one thing that none of them saw (yet) that was hidden in plain sight. They didn’t see that Jesus “had to rise”. He had to rise because it was impossible for death to hold him, because the sentence was paid. And once a person sees this, well, seeing is believing.
