Sermon Audio: What Do You Do With a Dead Jesus?
Speaker: Pastor Val Watkins
Scripture Text: John 19:31-42
Size: 16.6 MB
The Final Week
What Do You Do With a Dead Jesus?
The Jewish leaders had no concerns that He would ever rise from the dead because they didn’t believe anyone would come back from the dead.
They deliberately set out to destroy any belief that Jesus would ever rise from the dead.
If they truly believed Jesus would rise from the dead in 3 days that would have been huge waste of money.
You see, the resurrection from the dead is the core of our faith.
What causes cardiac tamponade is that some people can literally undergo so much stress in their lives that fluid builds up around the heart restricting the heart.
What intrigues me the most about this story is that there is only ONE Gospel that records the Roman soldier piercing Jesus’ side–the Gospel of John.
But we serve a risen savior…in fact there’s an old hymn that says, “I SERVE A RISEN SAVIOUR, He’s in the world today.”
