Rev David Kowalick – The Resurrection Pt 1 & 2
Why did Jesus rise from the dead? How did he overcome the power of death? I believe the answer to these questions is entirely contingent upon the virtue of the bond of love between the Father and the Son. Yet the centrepiece of many Easter sermons, rather than being all about the bond of love between of the Father and the Son, is commonly quite the opposite. It concerns me how quickly so many well-meaning believers abandon the bedrock of faith and the creeds in favour of some pet theory of atonement. In this study we will review the passion of Christ in light of the union between the Father and Son and understand its implications for our faith and confidence in the resurrection.
