  6. Although Jesus bodily ascended and is hidden from our earthly eyes, he is not far off.
  7. The story of salvation is the true story of God doing his unexpected work of salvation for us.

  9. Paul thinks the consequences of Christ not being raised are worse for those who believe than those who never did if it were to be true Christ was not raised.

  11. What if sin was truly removed and what if the one who took it from us had the power to conquer it’s curse and spit in the face of death?
  12. This week we are taking a closer look at 1 Corinthians 15:14-19 and what we lose if Christ has not been raised from the dead.
