Can I Get A Witness

Passage:Luke 24:36-48

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Series: The Apostolic Witness - Easter A.D. 2015

Jesus indicates that his disciples are to be witnesses to his resurrection, and indeed that is just what Peter declares in one of his great sermons in Acts 3. Today we are also celebrating the Feast of St. George (Apr. 23rd), a great martyr from the 4th century. The word "martyr" means "witness". The place and significance of witness is vital and central to Christianity and its truth claims, and yet we increasingly overlook this key facet of our faith, or don't know much about it. Today we will look at the nature of witness, and what it means for us to be witnesses to Christ today.
