Easter Sunday: Changed

Text: Matthew 13:54-58;  John 7:1-9; James 1:1-2, 12; 1 Corinthians 15:3-7 

The resurrection of Jesus from the grave separates Christianity from all other religions. It is the resurrection that stands as the supreme evidence that Jesus of Nazareth is indeed the Savior and Lord. This reality is completely life-changing. In this message, we see this truth first-hand as we learn about one of Jesus’ closest companions. This companion spent most of his time with Jesus every single day, yet for the first thirty years of his life he didn’t believe. However, something dramatic happened in AD 30 that radically changed his life. He would never be the same because of that moment.
