Evidence for the Resurrection

Message by Brian Cretney (audio here)

  1. Why is the evidence for Jesus’ resurrection important to you? (HINT:  1 Corinthians 15 might give food for thought!)
  2. Brian argued that the facts best support the conclusion that Jesus was resurrected from the dead. How would you summarize his talk to someone outside the church?
  3. Brian gave several “pictures” to explain Biblical concepts.  For example:
  • Resurrection is the receipt that proves sin is paid.
  • Justification means that a debt is paid and we share in an incredibly wealthy joint account with Jesus.
  • Sin means to miss a target but by God’s gracious gift we can now bring pleasure to him as we were intended (2 Corinthians 5:15).
  • God wants to empower us just like a hand gives power to a lifeless glove (Ephesians 1:18-20).

Which of these might you find useful in communicating with others?  Practice it with someone!
