Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life

  • For man to be delivered from the power of death, Jesus the Son of God humbly lowered Himself to become man, by His death He might destroy the devil that had the power of death. By His resurrection He shows the power of Life. Heb 2:14-15
  • Without Jesus, man’s future is hopeless. This is an unchanged ending, because it is the  wages of sin. Rom 6:23

  • John 11:25-26
  • Those who believe in Jesus, will receive the life He gives that death will not overcome it.

3. Do you believe this ?
