SERIES: 20/20: Seeing Truth Clearly
MESSAGE: He’s Alive! Proofs of the Resurrection
SPEAKER: Skip Heitzig
SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 15:3-8

MESSAGE SUMMARY
Just as your own heart is the pump that brings life-giving blood to your entire body, so is the resurrection of Jesus that gives life to the gospel message. Without it, our faith would be totally useless; our message would be utterly powerless. The resurrection is also what separates Jesus Christ from every other spiritual leader and would-be messiah. It validates His teaching. It authenticates His claims. It substantiates His promises. And it corroborates our confidence in Him as our Savior and Lord.
