The Easter season reminds us of the importance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

If it has been a busy season for you and time has crunched your sermon prep, I pray this will give you a starting point (if needed) for your Easter sermon.

This sermon is based on a lengthy passage. Depending on your style and available time, you may choose to summarize the narrative and only read selected portions.

The Reality of the Resurrection—Luke 24:13-48

I. The resurrection of Jesus is a real, historical event. (vs. 13-24)

II. The resurrection of Jesus was foretold. (vs. 25-27, 44-47)

III. The resurrection of Jesus involves a real, physical body. (vs. 28-30, 41-43)

IV. The resurrection of Jesus is the guarantee of eternal life for all those who put their trust in him. (John 11:25-26; 14:18-19)
