Christ’s death and resurrection are the most important factors when it comes to following Jesus. The Apostle Paul bluntly wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:14 that if it weren’t for the resurrection, which obviously required Christ to die first, our faith would be totally pointless. As important and familiar as the story is to many, what often gets overlooked is the way the four accounts that we have at times differ from one another. Some include content that the others don’t. Why? Some of the authors contradict the others in some of the details. Why?

For some, these differences have led them to discredit the entire event of Christ’s death and resurrection. However, if we take the time to understand what the God-inspired authors are trying to communicate with the way they tell the story, it can lead to greater depth. This VIVA! Series will invite your group into these differences as you explore the most important story in the Bible. Here is what we’ll be discussing:

Week 1: Mark’s Account

Week 2: Matthew’s Account

Week 3: Luke’s Account

Week 4: John’s Account

    Viva (and Jake Kircher) have hit it out of the park again on this series!

    Our group did the Viva Christmas Story series first so the timing was perfect to piggy back this and review the different contexts of the gospel books leading up to Easter.

    The youth have looked forward to each week, anticipating what was coming next and appreciated building on what we learned in the previous series, but even knowing the context already, a few jaws dropped as we talked about the differences, really unpacked what was said and why, and did it matter to the overall story.

    Whether you’re looking to use in tandem with Viva Christmas Story or use as a stand alone unit, your group will be challenged unpacking the story in ways they likely haven’t explored before. Highly recommend for youth and young adults (or even older ones like me)!

    Keep up the great work Viva team!
