If the moment that Jesus rose from the dead is the most important moment of the Christian faith, the event upon which the entire movement is based, why do the Gospel writers only give us an empty tomb ? Why aren't there details and witnesses to the actual moment of resurrection ? Why do we only get people claiming to have encountered him AFTER the resurrection ? What if these very questions point to very good reasons for believing the resurrection actually happened on the first Easter ? Join us as we re-learn basic tools that help us understand not only the first Easter, but the political and social events we see all around us today. The scripture reading upon which this sermon is based is Matthew 27:62-Matthew 28:20
