FROM TODAY'S READING (3/29/2018)...
“The most important events in human history were the death and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
“The resurrection blasts apart the finality of death, providing an alternative to the stifling settling dust of death and opens the way to new life.”
1 Corinthians 15:3-8 (NLT) I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said. He was seen by Peter and then by the Twelve. After that, he was seen by more than 500 of his followers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died. Then he was seen by James and later by all the apostles. Last of all, as though I had been born at the wrong time, I also saw him.
1 Timothy 3:16 (NIV) Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great:
He appeared in the flesh,
was vindicated by the Spirit,
was seen by angels,
was preached among the nations,
was believed on in the world,
was taken up in glory.
