The Tree, The Cross, and the Spirit (#870)

870 – The Tree, The Cross, and the Spirit

The last time we met we talked about the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Many years ago I bumped into so many Christians who thought and taught that the crucifixion was the most important thing to focus on in Christianity.  So I decided to take a look at that and see what the scripture says.

He is Risen (#869)

He is Risen! (#869)

Today on most calendars is called Easter, some of us call it Resurrection Sunday.  Whatever we call it, it is a day to rejoice; when we celebrate that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead.  On this day God accomplished many things, including proving to the world He could raise someone from the dead.
