What About Jesus?Slide 20
Jesus Had Already Warned Them Jesus had forecasted that He would be killed and ascend on the third day "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man will be conveyed to the central ministers and copyists, and they will sentence Him to death, and will hand Him over to the Gentiles to deride and scourge and execute Him, and on the third day He will be raised up." Matthew 20:18-19Slide 21
The Rest of the Story Matthew 27:55-28:10 TLB And numerous ladies who had descended from Galilee with Jesus to tend to him were viewing from a separation. Among them were Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of James and John (the children of Zebedee).Slide 22
When night came, a rich man from Arimathea named Joseph, one of Jesus\' adherents, went to Pilate and requested Jesus\' body. Also, Pilate issued a request to discharge it to him.Slide 23
Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a spotless material fabric, and put it in his own particular new shake cut tomb, and rolled an extraordinary stone over the passageway as he cleared out. Both Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were sitting close-by viewing.Slide 24
The following day-at the end of the principal day of the Passover functions - the main ministers and Pharisees went to Pilate, and let him know, "Sir, that liar once said, \'Following three days I will return to life once more.\'Slide 25
So we ask for a request from you fixing the tomb until the third day, to keep his supporters from coming and taking his body and after that advising everybody he returned to life! On the off chance that that happens, we\'ll more awful off than we were at first."Slide 26
"Use your own Temple police," Pilate let them know. "They can watch it securely enough." So they fixed the stone and presented monitors on shield it from interruption.Slide 27
Early on Sunday morning, as the new day was unfolding, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to the tomb. All of a sudden there was an awesome seismic tremor; for a blessed messenger of the Lord descended from paradise and moved aside the stone and sat on it. His face shone like lightning and his attire was a splendid white. The gatekeepers shook with trepidation when they saw him, and fell into a dead swoon.Slide 28
Then the blessed messenger addressed the ladies. "Don\'t be frightened!" he said. "I know you are searching for Jesus, who was killed, however he isn\'t here! For he has returned to life once more, generally as he said he would. Come in and see where his body was lying. . . . What\'s more, now, go rapidly and tell his teaches that he has become alive once again, and that he is going to Galilee to meet them there. That is my message to them."Slide 29
The ladies kept running from the tomb, gravely alarmed, additionally loaded with bliss, and raced to discover the supporters to give them the holy messenger\'s message. Furthermore, as they were running, all of a sudden Jesus was there before them!Slide 30

He is Not Here… He is Risen!Slide 32
The Christians Hope 1 Corinthians 15:12-20 But let me know this! Since you accept what we lecture, that Christ became alive once again, why are some of you saying that dead individuals will never return to life again? For if there is no restoration of the dead, then Christ should in any case be dead.Slide 33
The Christians Hope And on the off chance that he is still dead, then all our proclaiming is futile and your trust in God is vacant, useless, miserable; and we messengers are all liars since we have said that God raised Christ from the grave, and obviously that isn\'t valid if the dead don\'t return to life once more.Slide 34
The Christians Hope If they don\'t, then Christ is still dead, and you are extremely silly to continue trusting God to spare you, and you are still under judgment for your wrongdoings; all things considered, all Christians who have passed on are lost! Also, if being a Christian is of worth to us just now in this life, we are the most hopeless of animals.Slide 35
He Was the First of Millions! In any case, the truth of the matter is that Christ did really become alive once again and has turned into the first of millions who will return to life again sometime in the not so distant future.Slide 36

Some confirmations to take a gander at The stone was moved away The watchmen were gone The tomb was unfilled The grave garments were in the same spot It was SundaySlide 38
The Stone Was Rolled AwaySlide 39
Who Rolled it away? Jesus? (The Swoon Theory) How could he have been able to he fake His passing ? How could he have been able to He escape the grave garments? How could he have been able to he move a 2 ton stone? How could he have been able to he overwhelm the Roman gatekeepers?Slide 40
The Disciples Stole the Body? It is safe to say that this is conceivable? They took out the Roman Guards They Rolled the stone away They broke the Roman seal They deserted the grave garments They all were executed over this lie without abnegatingSlide 41

Jesus Appears to more than 500 After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, the vast majority of whom stay as of not long ago, however some have nodded off; then He appeared to James, then to every one of the messengers; and lastly, as to one inconvenient conceived, He appeared to me too.Slide 44

Do you Have this Hope? to get a legacy which is enduring and undefiled and won\'t blur away, saved in paradise for you, who are secured by the force of God through confidence for a salvation prepared to be uncovered in the last time.Slide 46
The Fear of Death brings subjugation Therefore, since the youngsters offer in fragile living creature and blood, He Himself similarly additionally shared of the same, that through death He may render frail him who had the force of death, that is, the demon, and may free the individuals who through trepidation of death were liable to subjection all their lives.
