1 Corinthians 15:50-58

As we finish 1st Corinthians chapter 15, Paul brings his discussion of resurrection to a victorious crescendo and climax! Death and the grave do not have the last word! Like a lion with no teeth, a snake with no venom, or a bee with no sting, death has been stripped of its power and the…

Easter 2019: 1 Cor 15:35-49

Easter Sunday 2019 celebration! We’ve prepared for this Sunday by diving deeply into the “Resurrection chapter” of 1st Corinthians 15 for the last several weeks. Today we celebrate the resurrected savior and continue our study in this rich and important chapter to our faith!

1 Corinthians 15:20-34

On this Palm Sunday we continue in our study of 1st Corinthians 15 – The Resurrection chapter – with Part III in our series. As we would expect, this next section is packed with essential truth. How we think and how we understand really does dictate how we live. Our true theology is evident in…

1 corinthians 15:12-19

You have heard it said that some things are a “matter of life and death”. All month, as we discuss resurrection, we will be discussing life and death. At the end of the day, when the smoke clears and people stop long enough to turn off the stimulus and think, it all boils down to…

1 corinthians 15:1-11

Paul picks up a super-important (and timely) topic as we enter 1st Corinthians 15: resurrection! This is a long chapter, and will take us right up to Easter, so we will be well prepared by the time we gather for Resurrection Sunday. The Corinthian issues with bodily resurrection, and the fact that Paul had to…

Easter 2018: Ephesians 2

After Christ was crucified on Friday, He was buried before sundown so the Jews could observe their sabbath, Saturday.  There is only one reference to any events that happened on Saturday, and it is a mention of the Pharisees going to Pilate to ask for a guard at the tomb.  Other than that, the Scriptures…

Easter 2017

On Easter Sunday, Pastor Steve took us to John 14, part of a long conversation that Jesus had with his disciples on the night of the Last Supper before he was betrayed in the garden. When we talk about resurrection, sometimes we only think of it in terms of our own resurrection after death. But…

Mark 15:42-47; 16:1-8

We move from the finality of the end of chapter 15–where Joseph of Arimathea, a wealthy member of the Sanhedrin, asks for Jesus’s body as a final way to honor Him (as he was a secret disciple)–into chapter 16, the amazement of that Sunday morning with the stone rolled away and an empty tomb. It…

Romans 6:1-11 (Easter Sunday 2016)

Romans 6 may not be a traditional “Easter Sunday” passage, but it is a powerful image of our being “united with”, “joined to”, or even “conjoined to” Christ in his death, resurrection, and glorification! It is both a mystery but a powerful truth when we realize that we are joined with Him, and that we…
