Part 7 – Believe that Christ is Raised
Driving Point: Jesus Christ is raised – our response is faith.
Jesus Christ is raised
Overwhelming message of the NT is that Jesus Christ died and rose again.
Objections (building the case)
- He didn’t really die
- His Body was stolen
- Bible is not reliable
If true, what does that mean?
- If it’s true, then it changes everything
- It not only means something, it demands something – a reorientation of life
- I don’t want to let go (v.5-7)
- God is boring (v.10)
- I’m not Good Enough
Our response is faith
- The positive orientation toward the One who is God
- A certain allegiance to the One who is God
