Despite being the one who betrayed Jesus, Judas Iscariot is probably one of the most well known of the apostles. Pastors Nathanael and Mark dig into what the Bible tells us about Judas and explore questions surrounding why he would betray Jesus and what might have been going on in Judas’ head as these events unfolded. Even though Judas is seen as an enemy of Christ, it is important that we humbly account for the ways in which we might face similar temptations as Judas and understand what truly makes us strong in Christ.
One of the most popular arguments against the resurrection of Jesus is that the disciples stole Christ’s body out of the tomb. This response to the resurrection was first formulated by the Jewish leaders who executed Jesus. Pastors Neal and Mark take a look at this argument and explain how the Bible thoroughly debunks it in several different areas. In fact, this lie first given by the Jewish leaders actually further substantiates the miracle of the resurrection today.
Paul was one of the most influential apostles yet perhaps the most unlikely as well. Formerly known as Saul, and a great persecutor of the Church, Paul’s story reminds us that the grace of Christ can reach anyone. No sin is too great to be forgiven and no individual too lost to be used in the service of God’s kingdom.
