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.

11But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, 12And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 13And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. 14And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. 15Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. 16Jesus saith unto her, Mary.
