Message All Things RESURRECTION: Rev. John Song
Part 2) “How the Resurrection of Jesus Changed Our Lives Today?”
Sermon series on All Things RESURRECTION resumes this Sunday with Part 2) “How the Resurrection of Jesus Changed Our Lives Today?”
Why did Christianity begin, and why did it take the shape it did? To answer this question – which any historian must face – we will explore the key question: what precisely happened at Easter? What did the early Christians mean when they said that Jesus of Nazareth had been raised from the dead? How does the Resurrection of Jesus change our lives today?
The Walk to Emmaus
28 As they came near the village to which they were going, (Risen Jesus) walked ahead as if he were going on. 29 But they urged him strongly, saying, “Stay with us, because it is almost evening and the day is now nearly over.” So he went in to stay with them. 30 When he was at the table with them, he took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them.31 Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him, and he vanished from their sight. 32 They said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?”
33 That same hour they got up and returned to Jerusalem, and they found the eleven and their companions gathered together. 34 They were saying, “The Lord has risen indeed, and he has appeared to Simon!” 35 Then they told what had happened on the road and how he had been made known to them in the breaking of the bread.
