Dear Central Members,
Attached you will find the slides I covered during bible study last Wednesday. I have also included for you a pre-read that you need to read in advance of our lesson next week (April 4). As I shared with you last Wednesday there are individual Christians and Theologians who believe Jesus was crucified on Wednesday and spent three entire days and nights in the grave. I have included what this group believes and the scripture they utilize to support this belief. I have also included the traditional belief that Jesus was crucified on Friday and was resurrected on Sunday. The objective is not for you to get into an argument with anyone or take a dogmatic position. The intent of this reading material is for you to understand the different positions and why people hold those positions, so you can be better informed.
As your Pastor, my objective is to ensure you have the Truth of God’s Word and that you rely on the Holy Spirit to lead, guide and direct you into all truth!! We will open our discussion on April 4 with any questions you might have from the reading material and quickly go into our scheduled lesson. I hope you are growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, practicing Modeling Grace, Transparency and working hard to ensure that you are Enhancing Relationships with Fellow believers and non-believers as well as honoring our Lord and Savior.
Grace & Shalom!!
Pastor Perry Stuckey
