1 Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. 2 And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning,…
Today we conclude this series on Matthew. I hope that I have given you a view of Jesus from Matthew’s perspective. I have tried to cover as much of the book that I could in these 14 weeks. I hope that you have taken just a piece of what Matthew wrote and begin applying it to your life. Today is no different.…
Jesus died on the cross and was buried the evening before the Sabbath. Some of his disciples and Joseph of Arimathea took him down, prepared his body quickly, and buried him in the Arimathean family tomb. Only after the Sabbath, 36 hours later, did the women disciples go to see what they could do for…
Encounters with the Risen Jesus!
The eleven disciples traveled to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshiped, but some doubted. Jesus came near and said to them, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them…

What’s your Easter story? I didn’t really know the Easter story until my first semester of college. Easter had always been about hidden eggs, Easter bunnies, and ham at my granny’s house. But in my freshman year of college, came to know Jesus as Lord and Savior of my life and learned that Easter was…

Nothing Can Hold Me Down Oddly, we talk much about Christ Rising from the dead, but it seems as if we only are focused on The Power of His Resurrection during the season of Easter! I believe The Blood still has Power - I believe that The Resurrection reassures us that Because God Said So, Nothing Else…

The Scarlet Thread
Elias talks about the empty tomb, doubt, deception, and the decision to follow Jesus Christ who defeated death.
Have you wrestled with doubts? The first disciples of Jesus did. Does your Christian conviction fluctuate from time to time? In the span of a few short days, the disciples rode a rollercoaster of emotion. So what turns a fickle follower into a devout disciple--with a devotion like we see in the disciples later throughout the New Testament? Join as we observe how the resurrection so profoundly transformed the disciples' faith and the future trajectory of all who find faith in the Risen Lord.
It seems timely to consider a week after Easter that Christ shared with his disciples an important task following his resurrection. Before his ascension, he calls them to follow his example here on earth and to bear witness of him to everyone. Over this last month we’ve observed five portraits of our Risen Lord. Join us as we consider a sixth and final one, focusing our minds on these last and crucial imperatives of our life’s sole Master and the Church’s one Head and Chief Shepherd.

Today we remember the story of Mary Magdalene at Jesus’ tomb and watch her grief turn to joy as her questions about Jesus’ death are answered, while at the same time new questions arise about what it means to serve a risen Savior. What do you do with your hard questions?

On Friday Jesus was crucified and the effect on the disciples was devastating. They felt all hope was lost. However, on Sunday all that changed when Jesus rose from the grave. Hope is alive—the Hope that can truly change your life too!
