Jewish Roots: Easter

Easter 2023

How do you know what’s true?

How can I know there is a God?

How do I know what happens after death?  

Easter has answers to life’s biggest questions


Matthew, Mark

Matthew, Mark, Luke

Matthew, Mark, Luke, John

Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, James

What would your brother have to do to convince you that he was God?

Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, James, Paul

1 Cor. 15:3-7 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas (Peter), and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles.

The first Easter transformed the first Jesus followers


They are asked to believe the unbelievable truth

Jesus died and rose again

This universe is only one of two things: a personal universe or impersonal universe – Francis Schaefer

If there is a God, then to believe the unbelievable makes sense

Easter means you can know what’s true/real

John 18:37 Jesus responded, “You say I am a king. Actually, I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.”

Easter means that God wants you

Easter means that I too will live beyond the grave

John 5:24 “I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.

John 3:16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

You are the truth, show me the way

You are God and I am your child

You are preparing a place for me

Come and believe the unbelievable truth
