The subject of the Sunday school
lesson, Christ the Living Lord.
Memory selection, Blessed are
they that have not seent and yet
have believed. John 20:29.
Easter is a celebration of Jesus
resurrection according to prophecy,
new testament teachings, and doc
trine. For Christians, Jesus’ Victory
over death and the grave is the cli
max of all Bible teachings, and the
answer to the question of the cen
turies. If a man die, shall he live
again. Vri Z.a.
The risen JLibtd made hi5 appear
ance on the first day of the week
- ____
(Sunday) to the womer. who came
to complete hi burial which had
been hurriedly done Friday before
sunset, the beginning of the Jewish
Sabbath.
After the Women s startling dis-.
covery, they ran to tell Peter and
John what the. had seen and heard,
neither they nor the disciples real
ized the meaning and significance
of the empty tomb. Following his
appearance to the disciples they
were convinced of the resurrec
tion of ihgir Lord, because they saw
and therefore believed.
Thomas was not present during
this appearance and he doubted the
testimony of his associates. Later,
he was convinced, and cried out,
acknowledging the risen Saviour as
his Lord.
