Resurrection Sunday

                                       March 31, 2002

                                       John 19:28-20:9



Today we study about the Greatest Event in the history of

the world, the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God,

the Savior of the world.


I don’t understand it but I believe it.  I want the attitude of

the patriarch, Abraham, of whom Paul said in Romans 4:20-22


            “He staggered not at the promise of God through

              unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to

              God; and being fully persuaded that, what He

              had promised, He was able also to perform.  And

              therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness”


I confess the atttitude of Job 19:25-27:


            “For I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that He

              shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:  and

              though after my skin worms destroy this body,

              yet in my flesh shall I see God:  Whom I shall see

              for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not

              another; though my reins be consumned within me”


For the Bible says “if in this life only we have hope in Christ,

                        we are of all men most miserable” I Cor. 15:19


Has not Jesus said “I am the resurrection and the life, he that

                                    believeth in me though he were dead, yet

                                    shall he live”  John 11:25

We pick up with the end of the crucifixion of Christ in

John 19:28                 filling up the prophetic picture in


Psalm 69:17-21                      Psalm 22:14-19


These passages the most quoted in New Testament


Hebrews 5:7-9
