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
