Resources on Resurrection Of Jesus

I want you to have some sense of what kind of story this is. The Christian message centers on the fact of the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

Do you see that in verse 6? “In this you...

Now if you would turn with me please to the book of Esther chapter 8.  Esther chapter 8; you’ll find that on page 414 in the church Bible.  Before we read God’s Word together let’s bow our heads as we pray.

John 20:24-31 Doubting Thomas

Please turn with me to the penultimate sermon of John's gospel. This particular section at the close of the chapter records for us the appearance of our Lord Jesus Christ in the upper room to the disciples at a time when Thomas, who is also called Didymus, was with them.
