Fusion: week of 4/16


Matthew 28:1-15

Everything in our faith hinges on the Resurrection.

1.  Jesus' Resurrection Was Verified by an Empty Tomb

     (Matthew 28:1-6)

     The only logical explanation for the empty tomb is the
     Resurrection of Jesus.
2.  Jesus' Resurrection Was Verified by His Physical Appearance

     (Matthew 28:7-10)

     Our confidence is bolstered by the many that saw
     and verified the bodily resurrection of Jesus.
3.  Jesus Rose From the Dead, Despite Those Who Claimed Otherwise

     (Matthew 28:11-15)

     The failure of the efforts to cover up the Resurrection 
     only serves to intensify its truth and power.

     Jesus' innocence made it possible for us to avoid receiving
     the punishment we deserve.

In humbling Himself, Jesus demonstrated His worthiness to be worshiped.
