Which story do you believe?

  • Jesus’ disciples snuck past Roman guards, rolled back the stone (by themselves) in the middle of the night and stole his body… all while the guards were asleep (thus creating the greatest lie ever told)
  • Jesus was killed and sealed in a tomb for three days, then defeated death, rose and appeared to multiple people (thus proving he was who he claimed to be)

Doubt is a normal part of human nature, but it is always grounded in a lack of faith. Even the disciples, who witnessed Jesus with their own eyes, struggled with doubt. However, at some point, we have to make a decision about Jesus. If you believe that Jesus is who he claimed to be, why hesitate in going all in and trusting him with your life?

Digging Deeper

Want to get a little deeper into the study? Below are some questions and thoughts to consider based on the sermon message. Feel free to work through them on your own, as a family or in your small group. (Discussion questions for elementary-age kids can be found below.) If you have questions, please contact us.

Discussion Questions:

  • What are the most common lies spread about Jesus today? Have you had any interactions with these falsehood stories?
  • Why do you think the chief priests devised a plan to deceive people about Jesus’ resurrection instead of believing themselves?
  • What stands out to you in the Great Commission?
  • What is significant about the promise Jesus gives at the end of Matthew’s gospel? Do you ever need to be reminded of this promise? How would you live differently always knowing that Jesus is with you?
  • If you were one of the disciples hearing Jesus tell you this on the mountain, how would you have felt? What would you have done next?
  • How does the Great Commission apply to us today?
  • Reflecting on the last four weeks of our Risen study, what is God asking you to do next? Do you need to respond to the gospel and go all-in with Jesus? Do you need to “go” and take the gospel to someone who is yet to know Jesus?
