Did Jesus Really Rise from the Dead – Week Three

Did Jesus Die Graphic

Praise God who raised Jesus from the dead! What happened in the life of Jesus can happen in our lives as well through His grace!

Week Three of our study examines Chapter 4 & 5 of the book. It begins to unpack and refute some of the false theories that attack the bodily resurrection of Jesus.

Here is the handout for the Study: Week Three

God be praised – forever and ever!
