Notes & Transcripts

In June - trip to Israel -  Visited the Garden Tomb (show picture) near the sight of possible Golgaltha (show picture)

It may or may not have been the tomb Jesus was laid in, but quite possible.

But the point is: the tomb was empty.

No other religion has an empty tomb of its leader, but Jesus' tomb is empty.

Jesus said he would die and then rise again.

In Mark 10:32b-34, it reads: … "Taking the Twelve aside again, He began to tell them the things that would happen to Him. 33 "Listen! We are going up to Jerusalem. The Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn Him to death. Then they will hand Him over to the Gentiles, 34 and they will mock Him, spit on Him, flog Him, and kill Him, and He will rise after three days."

And in Mark 16:6 it says: ""Don't be alarmed," he told them. "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has been resurrected! He is not here! See the place where they put Him.”

As you take communion, we think of Jesus' and the high price He paid on the cross.  We confess our sins; but we also remember that it is possible our sins are forgiven, because Jesus rose from the dead - He is alive and the tomb is empty!
