RESURRECTION

RESURRECTION

- LUKE 24 -

 

“IF GOD WERE SMALL ENOUGH TO BE UNDERSTOOD, HE WOULDN’T BE BIG ENOUGH TO BE WORSHIPPED.” ~TIM KELLER

 

THREE MOVEMENTS IN LUKE 24:

VICTORY, VALIDATION, VISION …

 

ARGUMENTS AND ANSWERS: Vv.1-12

 THE BIG ARGUMENT IS FROM JESUS HIMSELF …

 THE ISSUE OF WOMEN …

 THE ISSUE OF WITNESSES …

 

RICHARD BAUCHEM, JESUS AND EYEWITNESS,  “THIS PASSAGE DOES NOT AT ALL RESEMBLE A LEGEND … ANCIENT HISTORIANS GAVE MOR WEIGHT TO STILL LIVING EYE WITNESSES THAN WRITTEN DOCUMENTS OR ANY OTHER SOURCE OF PROOF … EYEWITNESS WERE ALWAYS THE SOURCE OF CHOICE FOR HISTORY.”

 

 THE ISSUE OF A WORLDVIEW … 

 

“THE RESURRECTION IS A HARD, BARE, TERRIBLY IRRITATING, PARADIGM SHATTERING, HORRIBLY INCONVENIENT BUT IMPOSSIBLE TO DISMISS FACT.”

~TIM KELLER

 

SKEPTICISM AND CONVERSATIONS, Vv.13-24

 

 BLIND DISCIPLES, THE EMMAUS ROAD …

 

THOUGHT: THE RESURRECTION PAIRED WITH THE CROSS MAKES THE GOSPEL MAKE SENSE AND OPENS ALL OF THE SCRIPTURE.

 

 A BLINDED DISCIPLE, THE DAMASCUS ROAD …

ACTS 9:3-5

 

GRACE AND GLORY, Vv.27-50

 BEGINS WITH THE SCRIPTURE, Vv.27

 BLIND EYES OPENED, Vv.31

 BURNING PASSION, Vv.32

 BLESSING TO THE WORLD, Vv.9, 33-35

 

APPLICATION: THERE IS HOPE FOR THE FUTURE,

 THE FUTURE IS REAL,

 THE FUTURE IS RELATIONAL,

 THE FUTURE IS IRREFUTABLE, 

 THE FUTURE IS RADICAL

More of our people need to take advantage of what is offered on Wednesday nights. These classes are not for a select few but for every “Stonian”!

 

If you have never attended, or haven’t been in a long time, I encourage you to be with us this Wednesday night. It will simply be the best investment of an hour that you can make on a Wednesday. We hope to see you there!
