Episode 020: The Resurrection

SPECIAL Pastor Roundtable discussion on Easter organized by MOUNTAIRE FARMS. Roger Marino of Mountaire Farms helped to organize the discussion and shares a bit about Thanksgiving at Easter.

Guests include Pastor Bruce Rogers of Long Neck UMC in Long Neck, DE – Pastor Mark Magee of The Crossing in Lewes, DE – Pastor Mark Massey of The River Church in Berlin, MD – Pastor Ryan Coon of Calvary Church in Dover, DE.

What historical facts support the claim that Jesus was raised from the dead? What if Jesus died for our sins (forgiven) but did not rise from the dead? Does the resurrection affect us, or was it just a new life for Jesus? How hard is it to believe that a man could rise from the dead? Kind of weird isn’t it!
