The Reason for Faith: How can you believe in the Resurrection?

In the last sermon in our series on answering tough questions or common objections to Christianity, pastor Luke addressed the resurrection of Jesus. In contrast to other religions, Christianity has always invited skeptics to evaluate the evidence for her claims. Looking to three of the strongest evidences for the resurrection of Jesus, this sermon explored the implications of 1 Corinthians 15 and what Paul called the things of "most importance."
