Scripture: John 20
At the heart of the Christian faith is the belief in the resurrection of Jesus. So central is this one part of Jesus’ story that the apostle Paul once proclaimed, “And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith” (1 Corinthians 15:14). But we often forget that this key part of our faith was not so obvious, even to Jesus’ first disciples. They too thought it was unbelievable…until they encountered him face-to-face.
