Attached is the list of readings for this week of our Essential Jesus sermon series — Since Easter is next Sunday, this week we’ll look at Jesus’ resurrection.
We’ll be reading the resurrection account in all four gospels. Normally, we look at only one gospel story each year, so this will be a new one for me. As you read, you’ll notice that all the resurrection accounts include certain basics, but each one also includes additional facts unique to that writer. I used to be troubled by this, but now I find it really enhances the story.
