Good News from the Graveyard

April 1, 2018

A few days ago I took a walk through Greenwood Cemetery in Dallas. It’s an old graveyard not far from North Central Expressway. Many of the early leaders of Dallas are buried there. When I arrived, the place was almost deserted. I drove down one of the narrow roads and stopped near a large monument. […]

Death Defeated

Revelation 1:18 – April 3, 2010

Death was defeated when Jesus rose from the dead, and one day death will be no more.

What If

1 Corinthians 15:12-20 – March 24, 2008

This sermon reveals the four disastrous consequnces if the resurrection is not true. If Christ did not rise from the dead, our preaching has no purpose, our faith has no forgiveness, our death has no deliverance, and our service has no significance.

Christ and the Problem of Death

Hebrews 2:14-15 – April 12, 2006

“Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who has the power of death—that is, the devil—and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death” (Hebrews 2:14-15). I have been closely touched by death […]

A Tale of Two Men

Acts 2:24-32 – March 27, 2005

“Brothers, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day. But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne. Seeing what was ahead, he spoke of the […]

The Incorruptible Christ

Acts 2:24 – April 20, 2003

The first word is sometimes as important as the last word. Seven weeks had passed since the resurrection of Jesus. For 40 amazing days, Jesus appeared to his disciples on many occasions and taught them concerning the Kingdom of God. Then he ascended into the clouds and returned to his Father in heaven. Ten days […]

Why Are You Weeping?

John 20:11-18 – March 31, 2002

The story of Mary Magdalene meeting Jesus at the empty tomb is found only in John’s gospel. I think Mary must have told John about it personally. Everything about this little slice of life rings true to human nature as we know it. A weeping woman lingers by an empty tomb, wondering what has happened […]

What’s Your Problem with the Resurrection?

Acts 26:8 – April 23, 2000

The year: AD 60. The place: The palace of Herod Agrippa II in Caesarea by the Sea. The setting: The Apostle Paul has been in jail for two years. Now he stands in chains before the mighty Agrippa, great-grandson of Herod the Great, the malevolent king who attempted to butcher the baby boys in Bethlehem. […]

The Death of Death

II Timothy 1:10 – April 4, 1999

“Christ Jesus … has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.” II Timothy 1:10b Of all the fears that grip the hearts of modern men and women, no fear is greater than the fear of death. It is an evidence of our technological progress that on this Easter Sunday […]

The Rising of the Rejected Stone

Acts 4:8-12 & 1 Peter 2:4 – April 12, 1998

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 Easter has come once again but not everyone is smiling. This is the paradox of Easter—it is the holiest day on the Christian calendar, but not everyone shares our […]

The Supreme Question of Easter

John 11:25-26 – March 23, 1997

Because this is Easter season, the major newsmagazines have been running cover stories on religious themes. Last week Time magazine did one entitled “Does Heaven Exist?” Newsweek chimed in with “The Mystery of Prayer: Does God Play Favorites?” Even TV Guide got in the act with a series on articles on the theme “God and […]

The Easter Conspiracy

Matthew 28:11-15 – April 7, 1996

Do you believe it was just a myth? Do you think Jesus somehow staged his own death and then faked his resurrection? Why did the Jews concoct a plot while Jesus was still dead? Why were they so afraid? Why were the grave clothes left in such an odd position? If he didn’t rise from the dead, what happened to his body? These are the questions you need to think about. After you are through, then it’s time to make up your own mind. When Jesus stood before Pilate he declared, “Everyone on the side of truth listens to me” (John 18:37). Whose side are you on?

What Difference Does Easter Make?

Various – April 16, 1995

God has answered your deepest questions with the simplicity of an empty tomb. I declare to you that Jesus Christ is alive! My friend, what will you say to that? What difference does it make to you? Will you give him your heart and your life? Will you trust him as your Lord and Savior?

Easter Questions

Luke 24:1-12 – April 11, 1993

Can a person who calls himself a Christian ever doubt the resurrection of Jesus Christ? This morning I am going to argue that the answer to that question is Yes! It may sound odd to say that to a group like this on Easter morning but the question itself is very crucial. Let me put […]

Easter And The Secular Mind

Acts 25-26 – April 15, 1990

Part One I’m going to tell you an Easter story this morning about a man you probably don’t know much about. When I tell you his name, you’re going to think of something else, and some of you are going to think I’m just making it up. But I’m not. This man is in the […]
