The resurrection of Jesus is a central point of Christian doctrine. It’s been said that without Easter, Christmas is just another prophet’s birthday.
But while it might seem like one of the more far-fetched claims Christianity makes, the idea of a resurrected leader was not all that unusual in the ancient world. Which leaves us asking, did it really happen? What if it didn’t? And, ultimately, what’s the difference?
So what do we really know about the Resurrection? What did it mean to the first followers of Jesus, and how does that impact our lives today? Does it matter whether it was an actual, historical event, or just a myth of the early church?
This Sunday at New Wineskins we’ll talk about the concept of resurrection, what we believe about it, and what we might be missing in the larger narrative of the cross and the empty tomb.
We hope you’ll join us this Sunday, April 23, in the 167 Side Room of the Marietta Brewing Company for what promises to be an interesting and lively conversation!
Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm
Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
