Death Couldn't Hold Him
Death could not hold Jesus in its grip, nor could it hold you if you believe that the Son of Man, Jesus Christ, is the Son of God.
Consider the people mentioned in Mark 15:40-47. They were very different, but had one thing in common. Some people just believed Jesus passed out, and that He wasn’t actually dead. How likely is that, considering what you have just read in Mark 15:40-47?
Joseph Had Courage
Look at all of the information about Joseph of Arimathea in Mark 15:43. Consider the amount of courage he must have had when he asked for Jesus’ body.
When the women found the empty tomb, Mark 16:5 tells us that they were amazed. The young man says that they shouldn’t be amazed. See Mark 16: 6-7 to find out why.
In Mark 16:15, Jesus gives specific instructions. How does Mark 16:20 show this was fulfilled?
Compare Mark 16:15-20, Matthew 28:18-20, and Luke 24:47-49. As modern day disciples, how do we fulfill this commission?
Did Jesus Keep His Promises?
In Matthew 28:16-27, Luke 24:6-7, and Mark 16:7, what do we discover about Jesus keeping His promises?
1 Corinthians 15:1-8 speaks of many eyewitnesses to the resurrection. What effect does this have on your faith in the bodily resurrection of Jesus?
This concludes our study of “Jesus: Understanding His Death & Resurrection”. Thank you for being a part of this study. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or comment here.
Next Wednesday, we will begin a study based on 1 Peter. The new study is titled, “Finding Encouragement in Troubling Times”, written by Sue Edwards.
