Passage: Luke 24:36-53

Speaker: Mitch Kim


Jesus really, literally, physically, bodily rose from the dead. Not as a spirit, an image, or metaphor, but a fully embodied, physical human being. When Jesus appeared to his disciples, they couldn’t believe that he was really back from the dead, but with a lot of convincing, they finally believed their senses. Why does God’s plan involve a physical resurrection for Jesus and for us? What does that tell us about what God values? What are the physical resurrection’s implications for our lives? Jesus’s physical resurrection strengthens our hope by affirming the goodness of physical reality, provides the foundation of our mission, and inspires us to worship.
