7 AM.

Easter Sunday 2020.

This morning at Redeemer I will look at the oldest words written about the resurrection of Jesus. This is the ancient creed that followers of Jesus recited. It's found in 1 Corinthians 15:3-7.

In this morning's service I will read these words, then ask our people to repeat them after me.

And, I will ask them to memorize them.

Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 
 he was buried, 
he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 
he appeared to Peter
He appeared to the Twelve. 
After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. 
 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles.

This is Resurrection Sunday!

Jesus is risen!

He's alive!
