Each of the four Gospels presents the resurrection evidence from Christ’s burial tomb. John wrote for the express purpose of producing belief in Jesus as the son of God. (John 20:30-31) According to John the resurrection is the supreme sign that Jesus is the Son of God (John 20:1-8) John pointed out in this text that the disciple who came first to the tomb “saw and believed.” He wants us to know what he saw and why he believed. The facts as we have them from John, are four in number:
1) The stone had been rolled back and the tomb was standing open, 2) The tomb itself was empty of the body of Jesus, 3) The grave cloths in which Jesus was buried were lying in the tomb, and 4) It was Sunday, the first day of the week.

This Sunday March 5 we will start a new Bible Study Series on the “Mysteries in Daniel”. The Babylonian Captivity provided one o the darkest periods in the history of the Jews. A central figure in that time was Daniel, first seen as a young man carried into captivity and later seen as an elderly prophet determined to guide his people back to God. The first half of Daniel contains major events most often taught to children about standing firm against disturbing odds. The second half of the book introduces Daniel’s visions that give a sense of what was and what was to come.
Join us this Sunday morning at 9:45 for lesson one – “Serving God in Babylon” (Daniel 1:3-20)
In Paul’s second epistle to the church at Corinth, he points out that Christians are to “walk by faith, not by sight.” (2 Corinthians 5:7) God’s word further explains in Romans 10:17, that “faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Ephesians 4:4-6 says “There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call — one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” “Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)
Walking by faith means trusting God’s word above all, for it provides the assurance and conviction needed to keep us focused on God’s promises along life’s uncertain path.
An unforgiving spirit is one of the most common of sins. God will not forgive us unless we forgive others (Matthew 18:34-35). It was this sin that the elder son of Luke15:28-30 struggled with in his personal life. Jesus taught Peter that one should forgive not merely seven times, but seventy times seven (Matthew 18:21-22).
Thus, it is clear from this passage that forgiveness can not be reduced to some definite formula. The scriptures teach that for us to obtain forgiveness from God we must be willing to confess our sins (1 John 1:7), motivated by “godly sorrow” (2 Corinthians 7:10).
Thus, forgiveness is extended to the one who acknowledges his/her sin from a place of genuine remorse. At that point forgiveness is to be extended out of our Christian duty.
