(John 19:38-20:31; Matt. 27:57-28:15; Mark 15:42-16:18; Luke 23:50-24:43)
Preached at LakeRidge Baptist Church on 04/21/2019 by Raif Turner
In the mind of the Jewish religious leaders, the crucifixion of Christ had once and for all dissolved the movement about Jesus. When He rose triumphant from the dead, the claims and teachings of our Lord were undeniably validated. The resurrection revitalized the feeble faith of the disciples and became the heart of the message they began to preach. It forced the enemies of the cross to face their responsibility for rejecting God’s Messiah and to reconsider the person and work of Jesus Christ.
