JESUS LIVES

During Jesus' time on earth he preached a Gospel of love. When asked by the Sadducees and the Pharisees what was the greatest commandment, "Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself..." (Matthew 22: 37 -39)

God sent Jesus into the world to die for our sins, so that we could have eternal life!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

Three days later he will rise.’” (Mark 10: 33 – 34)

“On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, he has risen…” (Luke 24: 1 – 6)
                                                                                

“Where, O death, is your
victory?
    Where, O death, is your
 sting?”
(1 Corinthians 15: 55)
