Sunday School Lesson for 4/7/2013. Unit II. Resurrection Hope. Luke 24:36-53 (Devotional Reading I Corinthians 15:1-8).
Jesus/Yeshua kept His word and fulfilled the words of prophecy about Himself through His Resurrection.
The Christian Church has failed their God-given assignment to proclaim Jesus/Yeshua to all nations (Luke 24:47).
The Great Commission – global evangelism – which Jesus/Yeshua preached after He arose from the dead.
Mankind is too skeptical of things at times that seems too good to be true, and that’s why some miss out on opportunities. We can also become at times overwhelmed when the unbelieveable becomes believeable.
