We wrap up the We Know series with a look at one of the more mysterious and puzzling passages anywhere in Scripture. The things we can understand and know surrounding the Easter event are essential for us if we are going to communicate truth to a world that needs to have answers. While we can’t know everything, what we can understand matters more than we imagine. This passage is about not just one dead guy getting up and walking but a whole bunch of them…not sure what we are talking about? Get ready – it will be fun.
In our series “We Know” we are discovering some things that anchor us to the reality and history of what happened around the very first Easter. Why does that matter? Because we live in a world that is way out of balance. People are angry, confused, and need hope – we know the answer they are needing, we know it is true, and we know that Jesus makes the difference. So return again to a very dark moment in history when light broke through and discover some things that we can know.
We Know takes us into the event that changed all of human history. In a culture that needs hope and answers – we can know for certain that there is hope and there are answers. We know and we have to share it with others.
Life can be turbulent and if we are not careful leaves us shaken up – these quakes can be devastating but if we are certain of what ‘we know’ there is hope beyond the shaking.
It is Easter at The Church @ 434. We are thrilled that you are on the adventure with us this morning. It is safe to say that the world we live in can be overwhelming, confusing, and sometimes just plain scary. What if we could know the source of hope, peace, and future? The good news is that we can- it is true – we can know. In this unique blending of all the passages from the gospels that describe that first Easter morning, we will see how God was making sure that we got the complete picture of what was happening – so we can know. And, when we know, then we have something to live for, to love for, and to share with others – We Know…Easter @ 434
