LIVE FROM THE GARDEN TOMB
I Corinthians 15:1-8
This is my favorite passage about the
resurrection of Jesus because it ties everything
together in about 8 verses.
I'm going to take a little bit different approach
because I'm going to give you a special report from

go to pieces in Jerusalem. At any moment it can
become a firestorm and a powder keg.
God says in Zechariah 3:12, "I will make
Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people". We
