Did Christ Really Rise from the Dead? 4 Confirmations That We Serve a Risen Lord
Easter is quickly approaching and many of us are turning our thoughts toward the Resurrection of Christ.
Easter is a time to rejoice in such a central tenet of the Christian faith. Easter is also a good time to ponder the truth of Christianity more deeply, and specifically look at evidence for Christ's Resurrection.
