1 Corinthians 15:1-8, 12-20, 50-58
1. The Resurrection FACT (vv. 1-8)
2. The Resurrection HOPE (vv. 12-20)
3. The Resurrection VICTORY (vv. 50-58)
1. What honest questions have you ever had about the resurrection? How has God given you confident faith that Jesus truly came out of the grave bodily and physically?
2. Read Romans 1:4. How did the resurrection validate everything that Jesus ever said and did?
3. Why would Paul say that if there's no resurrection, then we are "still in our sins"? Isn't that what the cross was supposed to take care of? So what is the relationship between the cross and the resurrection regarding forgiveness of sins? Read Romans 4:25 for additional insight.
4. Read Isaiah 25:6-8 and look at the phrase "the covering that is cast over all peoples, the veil that is spread over all nations." What did Phil say about this, and how does the resurrection victory (as illustrated in Hebrews 2:14-15) address it?
5. How did Jesus absorb and defeat the "sting of death," and what were your thoughts on the Donald Grey Barnhouse story about the shadow of the truck?
