I. A Higher Purpose Lazarus was a fried of Jesus and despite him being deathly sick, Jesus delayed in seeing Him. Lazarus died before Jesus arrived to Him. This sounds like the opposite of what a friend would do, especially a savior. Why did Jesus do this? Jesus wanted to perform a miracle so that they might believe. 14 Then Jesus told them plainly, “Lazarus has died, 15 and for your sake I am glad that I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.” John 11:14-15 45 Many of the Jews therefore, who had come with Mary and had seen what he did, believed in him, John 11:45 Everything Jesus did was on a higher plane. Jesus was constantly looking through this life on Earth to the next life. The people needed to look before this life to the next, Jesus the eternal life-giver. This is why Jesus delayed, to being attention to this. 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, John 11:25 II. The Most Disappointing Day What do you think was the most disappointing day in Christ's life on this earth? Perhaps when the ten lepers were healed and only one returned to thank Him? Or maybe when the disciples constantly fell asleep while He prayed? Or perhaps it was when Peter, his most outspoken apostle, denied Him three times? What about when Judas, a friend and apostle, betrayed Him? Let me suggest another. Do you think it was the resurrection morning? What?! Really?! That was a day of victory! That was the best day right? Death had been defeated. Why would this be the most disappointed day? Think about it. Jesus may have very well been disappointed that day because nobody was there to greet Him. There was no crowd of followers waiting on His resurrection victory. There was no parade back to Jerusalem with the resurrected Savior whom the Jews killed. Jesus had foretold of His return to His disciples many times: 21 From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised. Matthew 16:21 22 As they were gathering in Galilee, Jesus said to them, “The Son of Man is about to be delivered into the hands of men, 23 and they will kill him, and he will be raised on the third day.” And they were greatly distressed. Matthew 17:22-23 17 And as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside, and on the way he said to them, 18 “See, we are going up to Jerusalem. And the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death 19 and deliver him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified, and he will be raised on the third day.” Matthew 20:17-19 You might say that possibly the disciples didn't understand. I mean, this was supernatural stuff right? No one had conquered death. How could the apostles have truly understood? Well, Christ's enemies believed and understood Him. 62 The next day, that is, after the day of Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate 63 and said, “Sir, we remember how that impostor said, while he was still alive, ‘After three days I will rise.’ 64 Therefore order the tomb to be made secure until the third day, lest his disciples go and steal him away and tell the people, ‘He has risen from the dead,’ and the last fraud will be worse than the first.” 65 Pilate said to them, “You have a guard of soldiers. Go, make it as secure as you can.” 66 So they went and made the tomb secure by sealing the stone and setting a guard. Matthew 27:62-66 You see, even His enemies were prepared for the return of Jesus Christ. Why didn't His closest friends and followers believe Him? His friends thought He was dead (Luke 16:3; John 16:20)! The angel had to remind them when the women arrived! Still after the apostles were told, they did not believe. Of course, we all blame "Doubting Thomas" but really it was all of the disciples (John 20:24). 11 But when they heard that he was alive and had been seen by her, they would not believe it. Mark 16:11 III. Two Great Days in Man's History The two greatest days in the history of mankind are Christ's resurrection and the return of Jesus Christ. We already missed the first one. Do not miss the second one. Christ's closest followers already missed the first greatest day. Will you miss the next great day, Judgment Day? Technically, you will not miss it, no one will, but will you be on Christ's side? If so, it's a great day. If not, it's the worst day for you in all of history. “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. 4 And you know the way to where I am going.” John 14:1-4a 9 And when he had said these things, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight. 10 And while they were gazing into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes, 11 and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.” Acts 1:9-11 Jesus alone has the power of death and Satan. This is why Jesus delayed in death of Lazarus, to prove He had the power over death. Somehow, His closest friends missed it while His enemies never forgot.

V. Accusations against the Bible 1. Death of Judas (Matt 27:5; Acts 1:18) The gospel of Matthew states that Judas hung himself after feeling guilty for betraying Jesus. However, Luke records in Acts that his body burst open after betraying Jesus. Many non-believers try to use this as an error within the Bible. They say the Bible contradicts itself. However, think about this logically. Could it be possible that both are true? After death bacteria within the body is released causing the carcass to bloat. Either Judas was cut down and when his body hit the ground its entrails were exposed or the rope broke due to the increased weight over time. Either way, the scriptures do not contradict themselves but simply shed more light on the gruesome scene. 2. Burial of Judas (Matt 27:6-7; Acts 1:18) Matthew states that Judas threw down his money and the priests took the money to purchase a field. Acts records that Judas purchased a field. This would seem like a contradiction. Once again, think about it logically. This is easily explained as someone acting through another. If I give you money to purchase coffee for the entire office, who bought the coffee? I would've provided the funds for the coffee, however you would've physically purchased the coffee. Either of us could claim that we provided the coffee for the entire office. The same is true here. 3. Tomb of Jesus (Matt 28:1; Mark 16:1; John 20:1) Each of these three different gospel accounts may appear, at first glance, to contradict one another. However, look at them more closely. To contradict one another (1) one author must specify that only a certain person was there and no one else or (2) the author(s) must specify that someone was not there when another author clearly states that they were. There is no contradiction here. Each author provided information in which they felt was relevant to their audiences. Each paints the same picture from a different perspective. Mark is the most descriptive but it does not contradict the other accounts. 4. Lineage of Jesus (Matt 1:16; Luke 3:23) The Matthew account shows that Jacob was Joseph's father or Christ's earthly-grandfather. However, Luke records that Joseph was the son of Heli. This looks like a clear contradiction. A bit more study would show that Heli was Mary's father. Mary was married to Joseph. In those times, it was common after marriage to use this terminology between in-laws. After all, Joseph and Mary had become one flesh through marriage and therefore Joseph was the son of Jacob and the son (in-law) of Heli.

This is says how the disciples were all in terror at meeting up then Jesus came in and said meaning " may god give you every good thing" and all their terror was gone and they were told to receive the Holy Spirit and to build up the church ( "the body of Christ" ). This also shows god and Jesus's strong relationship which depends on Jesus being perfect and obidient to god

Our faith is not in vain Josephus - used as an argument that a person can survive crucifixion. Josephus pleased with the ruler to save his three friends lives. He agreed to offer mercy. These men were scourged and places on the cross before their reprieve but they were taken off alive and given the best medical care available at the time. Why do we believe in the resurrection? What are the facts? Scriptural proof...prophecies Eye witness accounts by a multitude of people People have died for truth but not for a lie Jesus rose from the dead and has power over life and death. Chapter 22 shows Thomas Ready to die with Christ...truth. Thomas was the disciple who doubted but when he touched His scarred hands and he fell before Christ. He truly believed yet Christ states that those it is better for those who believe without physical evidence.

with all of the religions in the world professing that they are the link to God while leaving out the son of god Jesus earlier in the week Jesus presents himself to his disciples, Thomas was not present. The disciples tell Thomas of Jesus's return hew doubts hence the name doubting Thomas. in our witnessing we may encounter a Thomas spirit form the people that we are trying to reach.
