Did you know? (Sunday, May 9, 2021)

“Resurrection, if you believed in it, had to do with the next life. It was something that happened to you after you were dead and buried and then found yourself with God in heaven for eternity. But Jesus’ resurrection took place on earth. These first witnesses and participants in Jesus’ resurrection obviously weren’t in heaven. They were walking the same old roads over the same old ground they had grown up on and talked and worked on, with the same old people they had grown up with.” “And that resurrection had taken place in the person of Jesus, whom they had watched die on a cross. “
