The Resurrection: The Resurrection & Everyday Life
Series Overview: 1 Corinthians 15:14 says, “And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.” The validity of the Christian faith, Christian doctrines, and Christian perspectives depend on the resurrection of Jesus. Everything Christians believe is rooted and impacted by the resurrection. In this series, we will consider how the resurrection informs the Christian understanding of some of life's most pressing issues. Additionally, each week we will update this page with helpful resources on each topic.
Week 1: The Resurrection & A Useless Faith (Easter) - Luke 24:1-12, 52-53 ; 1 Corinthians 15:14, 17
The Christian faith hinges on one single event––the Resurrection. If it did not happen, our faith is useless. However, if the resurrection of Jesus did happen, nothing in our lives stays the same and every claim of the Bible must be considered.
