About "The Lost Tomb of Jesus"

This e-mail came to me today—I’m quoting the whole thing because it relates to my previous entry about the “Lost Tomb of Jesus.”

Hey guys,

In case you or someone you know are not sure what to make of the new film coming out about the supposed "Lost Tomb of Jesus," I wanted to pass this website along with some helpful resources. Just copy and paste the following url:

(Judy adds: Read the article linked here, “Eight Reasons Why I Believe Jesus Rose from the Dead” by John Piper.)

Now—back to the e-mail—

Some food for thought:

Following the resurrection, Jesus encouraged his disciples with these words: "Peace to you! . . . Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have . . . . Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations" (Luke 24:36-49).

After "doubting" Thomas saw the risen Christ, he exclaimed, "My Lord and my God!" Jesus replied, "Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed" (John 20:24-29).

In the book of Revelation, the glorified "Son of Man" declared, "Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades" (Revelation 1:17-18).
