2- God raised Him from the dead!

Paul spoke these words in his first public sermon. Acts 13:16
"Men of Israel, and you who fear God, listen: The God of …Israel chose our fathers and made the people great during their stay in the land of Egypt, and with an uplifted arm He led them out from it… Then they asked for a king, and God… raised up David to be their king, concerning whom He also testified and said, ‘ I HAVE FOUND DAVID the son of Jesse, A MAN AFTER MY HEART, who will do all My will.' From the descendants of this man, according to promise, God has brought to Israel a Savior, Jesus… And though they found no ground for putting Him to death, they asked Pilate that He be executed. When they had carried out all that was written concerning Him, they took Him down from the cross

and laid Him in a tomb. But God raised Him from the dead; and for many days He appeared to those who came up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem, the very ones who are now His witnesses to the people. And we preach to you the good news of the promise made to the fathers, that God has fulfilled this promise to our children in that He raised up Jesus…’ ”

Many years later, while speaking to the Corinthians, Paul described Jesus as the Passover Lamb. 
The Messiah, our Passover Lamb, has already been sacrificed for the Passover meal, 1 Corinthians 5:6

Hallelujah, Van!

Because He is risen, we can have eternal life, and live this life to the fullest!

It's just amazing to think about God's perfect plan for us, and Jesus' power to raise from the dead!

Love you,
