That You May Have Life – The Gospel of John - Easter, Eternal Life

Series: That You May Have Life – The Gospel of John

Sunday, April 16, 2017 | By Gary Holmes

Today we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. But we don’t just celebrate his resurrection; we remember and celeb rate what the event means. The resurrection is a vindication of Christ’s ministry, a confirmation of his identity, a validation of what he said and did. This is the power and beauty of the Good News of the Gospel. There is light and life for all of humanity.

John 19:41-42

41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid. 42 So because of the Jewish day of Preparation, since the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there. (ESV)

John 20:1

20:1 Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. (ESV)

John 20:11-16

11 But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb. 12 And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. 13 They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.” 14 Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” 16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher). (ESV)
