On this episode of Preaching the Text, John Hoyum and Steve Paulson discuss the Easter Sunday gospel from Matthew. Here, we learn that the gospel isn't just in the empty tomb, but the proclamation of Christ as risen from the dead.
“Let no one fear death, for the Death of our Savior has set us free.
He has destroyed it by enduring it.
He destroyed Hell when He descended into it.
He put it into an uproar even as it tasted of His flesh.
Christ is Risen, and the tomb is emptied of its dead!” - Chrysostom
"Holy Week" might sound fancy and super-churchy, but it really just boils down to one thing: Jesus Christ for you.
