A sermon on John 20:1–18

The resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth is at the heart of the Christian faith. No resurrection, no Christianity. Yet, many modern people find belief in the resurrection difficult. What should we make of the New Testament’s accounts of Jesus’s resurrection? Are they reliable? Is belief in the resurrection reasonable?

In this Easter Sunday 2024 sermon, Ryan looks at the account of Jesus’s resurrection recorded in the Gospel of John. This passage shows us three things about belief in the resurrection:

  1. Belief in the resurrection is difficult.
  2. Belief in the resurrection is reasonable.
  3. Belief in the resurrection is life-transforming.
