  • What Now, Disciples?

    Contributed by Mack Armstrong on Apr 7, 2007

    What would the disciples do with the absence of their Lord? What would they do now? Yet, on that first Easter, the question was asked and the answers given over a period of time have changed the world. The question is for us today, "What now, disciple?

    JOHN 20:1-10 WHAT NOW, DISCIPLES? I. THE DARKNESS: * A. Doubts. B. Demoralization. C. Denials. Ii. THE DELIGHTS: ** A. Discovery. B. Defensible. C. Dedication. III. THE DIRECTIONS: *** A. Declarations. B. Dying. C. more

    based on 5 ratings

    The Discovery Channel recently aired a documentary titled, "The Jesus Family Tomb," in which they assert that a tomb was found containing the bones of Jesus and other family members. This sermon examines what really happened on that first Sunday.

  • Sharing The Story And The Sign Of The Resurrection

    Contributed by Warner Pidgeon on Apr 11, 2007
    based on 1 rating

    The resurrection is factual story. It is a sign pointing to the identity of Jesus and it is for us - the Church - to share with others! This is an all-age talk outline which could be developed in various ways.

    On this resurrection Sunday I want to speak about the story of the resurrection, the sign of the resurrection and sharing the message of the resurrection of Jesus. (NB - NOTE TO THE PREACHER - I began my talk by asking people about their favourite books and stories, and asking them to tell us if more

  • Little Children, Love One Another Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Dec 23, 2014

    John believed, and spent the rest of his life preaching agape love.

    St John’s Day Mass 2014 (December 27) Thirteen Days of Christmas Tradition tells us that of the three first witnesses to the empty tomb, St. John lived the longest. That is not surprising, since Tradition also holds that he was the youngest, perhaps a teenager during Jesus’s more

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Apr 16, 2014
    based on 1 rating

    An Easter sermon about the great gift of Christ's death and resurrection, of which we are the blessed recipients!

    Christ is risen! Christ is risen! Christ is risen! I don’t think there are three words in the history of the world that have had a greater impact than those. It is the Easter “mantra,” but it is also the encapsulation of the greatest story ever told; the greatest life ever more

  • Superlatives Of The Easter Story

    Contributed by Chuck Sligh on Apr 20, 2014
    based on 2 ratings

    It's hard not to use superlatives when discussing the Easter story. In this story we see...1) the darkest hour in all scripture; 2) the biggest discovery in all scripture; and 3) the loveliest word in all scripture (for one of it's characters).

    Superlatives of the Easter Story Chuck Sligh April 20, 2014 (A PowerPoint presentation is available for this sermon upon request at TEXT: Please turn in your Bibles to John 20. INTRODUCTION Illus. – A little boy had a tendency to exaggerate things in more

  • Easter Sunday: The Impact Of Christ’s Resurrection On Us Today

    Contributed by James Snyder on Mar 27, 2016

    I need to define my belief and make sure it is on a foundation and I need to make sure the foundation is solid. David said, “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalms 11:3).

    John 20:1-11 David Wilkerson was a very simple country pastor in Eastern Pennsylvania when God called him to the inner city of New York City and preach the gospel. Wilkerson’s experience had nothing in common with those young people he was trying to reach. He could not identify with them, more

  • What Do You Believe?

    Contributed by Phil Futoran on Apr 6, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    Many think that John, upon seeing the grave clothes, believed that Jesus had risen. This sermon challenges that view and, more importantly, what we really believe (live out).

    “Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. 2 Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, ‘They have taken away the Lord out of more
