JESUS IS BELIEVED to have died at the age of 33 after a life of approximately 12,000 days. The Gospel writers devoted most of their work to just 1,100 or so of those days, the last 3 years of his life; and their primary interest was in one particular day—the day he was crucified.

This 24-hour period changed the world, and each of the Gospels drives toward it. I do believe this 24-hour period created a legacy of being the greatest turn around or comeback ever.

Let’s look at what many call Holy Week. The trial and Passion begin Thursday evening after sunset and lasting on through Friday, Jesus would eat the Last Supper with his disciples; pray in the garden of Gethsemane; be betrayed and deserted by his friends; be convicted of blasphemy by the religious authorities; be tried and sentenced for insurrection by Pontius Pilate; be tortured by Roman soldiers; and undergo crucifixion, death, and burial.

These 24 Hours of Jesus Life, Changed the world and I also believe these 24 Hours can Change Your Life. I know those 24 Hour Changed Mine!

The aim of this Sermon is to help you better understand the events that occurred during the last twenty-four hours of Jesus’ life, see more clearly the God Spoken Importance of Christ’s suffering and death, and reflect upon the meaning of these events for your life.

A lot can happen in a day I Watch a show on Tv called 24 Legacy it is a 12 Episode show about one Guy stopping terrorist from causing Major destruction in America it’s a good Show. The Show goes minute by minute Hour by hour and leaves you hanging from show to show. The Same can be said about the End of Jesus Earthly life.

The 24 Hours or The Third Day

Let’s focus on the that day, it began at sunset on Saturday night, but it was not until morning that Mary Magdalene discovered the stone had been rolled away and the tomb was empty. The details differ in each Gospel, but all agree that this woman who had been set free by Jesus from demon possession or mental illness was first on the scene. Matthew, Mark, and Luke tell us she was accompanied by one or more other women; and they had come with scented oils to anoint Jesus’ body.

The women were shocked by what they saw: The stone had been rolled away from the mouth of the tomb. They ran to the tomb, afraid someone had taken Jesus’ body to desecrate it and humiliate him further.

The Gospels vary somewhat in their accounts of what happened next. According to Mark (16:5), “they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe.” Matthew (28:2) identifies him as “an angel [a Greek word meaning “messenger”] of the Lord.” Luke (24:4) says that “suddenly two men in dazzling clothes stood beside them.”

John (20:12) also tells us there were “two angels in white.” “They said . . . ‘Why are you weeping?’ ” (John 20:15). “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen” (Luke 24:5). With that, the women ran off to find the disciples.

The Easter chronology varies slightly in the four Gospel accounts; but one thing is clear: The idea that Jesus had been raised from the dead was considered unbelievable.”

The church has always boldly asserted that the tomb was empty, that Jesus was bodily risen, and that he appeared to the apostles and to hundreds of others over a period of forty days. He was not a ghost. He was there with them. But from the John text this was Jesus even when he called to Mary but he was also more. Mary didn’t recognize him by sight but by his voice and his calling of her name.

Point Number One, The Resurrection of Jesus Changes everyone. With Christ Jesus, there is a New Day!

There is no doubt the disciples were transformed following the Resurrection.

These people who had deserted Jesus because they were afraid, who hid behind locked doors rather than help bury him, were now in the streets of Jerusalem proclaiming him to everyone.

“Do with us what you want,” they said. “Kill us if you must, but we have to tell you:

The one you crucified we have seen raised from the dead. He is in fact the Son of God. He is the King of glory, the Savior of the world.” They went from there throughout the world proclaiming the good news. They faced difficult times. They were arrested again and again, beaten, abused, and thrown into prison.

Tradition has it that all but one of them were put to death for their faith, but they would never again dwell in those dark places of the spirit. No more would they feel the doubt and despair they felt before they had seen their risen Lord.
