John: Reason to Believe

John 20:19-30

How do we know that Jesus really did rise from the dead – I mean in a real physical body? And, even if he did, what difference does it make? Wouldn’t Christianity be just as valid, just as valuable, even if the resurrection of Jesus were just a “story”? Interestingly, the Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15, “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins…we are of all people most to be pitied.” This Sunday, we are going to explore John 20:19-31, meeting people whose lives were radically transformed when they encountered the physically resurrected Jesus. How might our lives be changed?
