There is a lot of evidence for the resurrection of Jesus. When Thomas asked for evidence that Jesus really was alive, Jesus gave it to him. This sermon 'pokes' the 'embarrassing' evidence for the resurrection of Jesus within the gospel accounts themselves - stuff that if it was made up, no one would believe it. Why are these things written in the gospels? Because they really happened! Jesus really did rise from the dead. Christ is risen - he is risen indeed.

Good Friday: the dying King

John's gospel makes it clear that Jesus' crucifixion is also his enthronement as King of the Universe. The symbols used in mockery point to a deep truth: the crown of thorns, the purple robe, and the notice of the charge against Jesus. Jesus is the dying king, who gives his life into death so that we might live. This sermon was preached at Pakenham Lakeside Church on Good Friday, April 14th, 2017.
