The Resurrection Changes Everything




NT Wright—a prominent Anglican theologian, talks about his friend, Marcus Borg. NT believes Marcus is a Christian even though he doesn't believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus. Is it possible to be a Christian without believing in the literal resurrection? In this study we learn how a Christ that didn't rise destroys our faith. A Jesus that did rise changes our lives.

John 20 - The Resurrection Changes Everything




The church often talks about the cross what Christ achieved for us on it. The early church in the book of Acts didn't talk about what Christ did on the cross. All twelve sermons in Acts talk about what Christ made possible through the empty tomb. The tomb is empty. Jesus loves you. He is alive and hears your prayers. That is the message of every spiritual revival in history. It is the resurrection that changes everything.
