The Words of Resurrection
After spending the season of Lent looking at Jesus' last words from the cross, on Easter Sunday, we'll consider some of the words he spoke after being raised from the dead. We'll look at what Jesus said to three individuals: Mary, Thomas, and Peter. We'll see that Jesus offered each of them something unique: comfort, faith, and a mission. As we look at these words of Jesus, we'll reflect on what Jesus says to us and how we might respond to the words of a resurrected Mesiah.
From Series: "Seven Last Words"
In this series, we will explore the seven statements Jesus made while on the cross, just before his death. These words have been a traditional reflection for Christians during the season of lent for thousands of years. In them, we see the whole message of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Through the ideas of forgiveness, eternity, provision, despair, thirst, completion, and trust we see how Jesus' death becomes the turning point for all of God's plan of redemption. The mysteries expressed in Jesus' words are too deep to fully understand, but by reflecting on them, we can enter more fully into the central point of our faith: the death of Jesus the God-man on the cross.
