resurrection

“…the clearest evidence would be requisite to make any sane man believe…”

My name is Stephen, I’m the pastor of a small church in the Cape Town CBD. Yes, a pastor! That means I spend a lot of time teaching people about the Christian faith. Maybe it’s incredulous to you that educated modern people still believe in the existence of a divine being. Or maybe you think there might be a God out there, but your doubt often gets the better of you. Well, I doubt too. Often actually. If you’d allow me, I’d like to, in the midst of my doubt, share my story of belief with you. I want to try and answer this question: If I made the decision to leave the Christian faith tomorrow, what things would bug me, or haunt me, at the back of my mind, as to whether or not I had made the right decision? In this talk I consider the historical evidence for the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.

I Am The Resurrection And The Life

Sermon Series - I Am

October 21, 2018

Bible Text: John 11:17-44 |

Series:

In John 11 we encounter Jesus's statement "I am the resurrection and life". In some of the other "I AM" statements we have considered in this short sermon series Jesus uses clever contextual metaphors like light and bread to powerfully convey the meaning of what he is saying. This time, however, it is the very stuff of human suffering and death itself that provides the backdrop for his radical claim. In this passage we catch a glimpse of people responding to suffering in their lives, but even more importantly, we see a clear picture of God's own response to suffering and death that offers us a real hope for life in a broken world.
