The Resurrection Of Christ - Part 2 (2 of 2)
Jesse M. Hendley
I Corinthians 5:13-19
This is a dying world. We are being constantly
reminded that we are a dying people. Job reminds us
that, "Man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly

But There Is Hope

our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. Yea,
and we are found false witnesses of God; because we
have testified of God that He raised up Christ: Whom
He raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. For
if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: And
