Resurrection is the Answer

Sunday, April 21st, 2019

Message by Pastor Sam Wong

Text: John 20:1-9

Sermon Outline:
One of the biggest mysteries in history: the rise of Christianity
Jesus’ message:
1. Not a new ideology
• Not to revolt against the Romans (Matthew 21:21; John 18:36)
• Not to deny Judaism (Matthew 5:17)

2. The core is Jesus Himself
• He is the Son of God (Matthew 16:16)
• Seeing Him is seeing the Father (John 14:9)
• He is life (John 1:4; 10:28; 14:6)

3. Resurrection is the only reasonable explanation (John 20:1-9)
• First group of witnesses were women
• Disciples’ first reaction: nonsense (Luke 24:11)
• John: saw and believed
• Disciples’ subsequent transformation (Acts 3:15)
