Apologetics, Bible Studies, The Gospels

Easter Sunday School Lesson

Outline of Message

Apologetics simply means defending  the faith.

We Need to defend our faith for two reasons.

  1. So that we are strong in our faith and will not be easily deceived.
  2. So that we are able to give a good  answer when others searching have questions for us about our faith.

Evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus:

  1. The Origin of the Disciples Belief in the Resurrection
    1. What brought about the change of attitude?
    2. What caused them to be willing to lay down their lives to tell others about this Jesus?
  2. The Post-Mortem Appearances of Jesus.
    1. It could not be their faith that caused a vision because they had none.
    2. It could not be a Dream because they all experienced him and touched him.
  3. The Evidence of the Empty Tomb.
    1. Those that opposed the disciples did not say the tomb is not empty, but accuse them of stealing Jesus’ Body.
      • Why would they steal it?
      • Where would they put it?
      •  Why would they get themselves killed over a lie?
    2. Some say he was not really dead.
    • Romans were proficient killers.
    • No one is going to believe Jesus resurrected if he is limping around bleeding everywhere.
