Workman Reflection Week #3
Day 1: Skeptics claim there is no credible evidence for the resurrection of Jesus, yet we have eyewitness testimony which includes large groups of witnesses to the same appearing. Within the first 15 verses of Matthew 28, we read of the two Marys finding the tomb empty and having a conversation with the Angel who was at the tomb. In addition to this we see the conspiracy of the Jewish leadership to pay off the guards. What other evidences of Jesus’ resurrection can be shown from New Testament passages.
Day 2: In Mark’s testimony, as the women traveled to the tomb they talked about how they would manage to move the heavy stone from its entrance. However, upon arrival at the tomb they found the entrance open and the stone rolled away. No further details are provided, other than an angel seated inside the tomb… who do you think removed the stone, and why?
Day 3: In Matthew 20:17-19 Jesus told His disciples specific details about what would occur in Jerusalem. Old Testament prophets were given messages from God which gave details about coming events and the purpose of such prophecy was to show God’s plan and to emphasize God is all powerful. How did Jesus’ prophecy about His death reveal the power & plan of God?
Day 4: John 20 tells of the discovery of the empty tomb. Peter and John (the disciple Jesus loved) ran to the tomb after the women told them Jesus’ body was not there. What did they discover? To discover the significance of what they found, read John 19:38-40.
Day 5: Mary had an encounter with Jesus following His resurrection in John 20:11-18. At first, Mary was so overwhelmed in her grief she did not recognize Jesus. How did Jesus convince her He had risen? There should be great comfort for believers today that Jesus loves us enough to recognize each of us by name.
Day 6: Paul explains the benefit of Jesus’ resurrection for all believers in Philippians 3:20-21. According to Paul, we await something Jesus will do for us; what will Jesus do for us?
Day 7: According to Paul in Romans 8:29, God’s plan for believers has always been for us to be conformed to the image of His Son, Jesus. What does it mean to be conformed to the image of Jesus? Will others be able to know, if so… how?
