West Valley Good Friday 2020 with Lee Strobel
Robert McGeorge - West Valley Good Friday
In a world so divided, what needs to occur for the Church to UNIFY in preparation for the return of our Lord? In a small way, the West Valley Good Friday Breakfast seeks to promote unity with varying Christian faiths to honor the risen Lord on this HOLY day asking our King to put Himself on display in our unity, that His glory may increase and His kingdom may grow! We believe that the year of 2020 will be an awakening for the body of Christ and we're excited to have Lee Strobel speak about the evidence for Christ, for our Creator, for faith and for miracles! Please join us April 10th at the Wigwam Resort to celebrate what makes Good Friday GOOD.
The Case for Christ
Is there a case for Christ? If there were to be an arbitrary legal hearing - a court case to determine whether or not Jesus Christ is in fact the only begotten Son of God - would He be vindicated by the evidence, or exposed as a fraud?
Lee Strobel, an atheist at the time he undertook this endeavor, decided that he would prove Jesus Christ to be a fraud by the weight of the evidence. Strobel was certainly qualified to undertake such a task, compiling the case against Christ. He has a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale Law School and was an award-winning journalist at the Chicago Tribune.
1. The Historical Record:
The eyewitness evidence (can the biographies of Jesus Christ be trusted?)
The documentary evidence (were the biographies of Jesus reliably preserved for us?)
The corroborating evidence (is there evidence for Jesus Christ outside of His biographies?)
The scientific evidence (does archaeology confirm or contradict Jesus'; biographies?)
The rebuttal evidence (is the Jesus of history the same as the Jesus of Christian faith?)
2. A Profile of Jesus Christ:
The identity evidence (was Jesus really convinced that He was the Son of God?)
The logical evidence (was Jesus crazy when He claimed to be the Son of God?)
The profile evidence (did Jesus fulfill the attributes of God?)
The fingerprint evidence (did Jesus - and Jesus alone - match the identity of the prophesied Messiah?)
3. The Evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus Christ:
The medical evidence (was the death of Jesus Christ and His resurrection a hoax?)
The evidence of the missing body (was Jesus' body really absent from His tomb?)
The evidence of His appearances (was Jesus seen alive after His death on the cross?)
The circumstantial evidence (supporting facts that point to the resurrection?)
The Case for Christ - Examining the Evidence
In trying the case for Christ, Strobel cross-examined and recognized authorities in their own fields of study. He conducted his examination with no religious bias, other than his predisposition to atheism. Remarkably, after compiling and critically examining the evidence for himself, Strobel became a Christian. Stunned by his findings, he organized the evidence into a book he entitled, The Case for Christ, which has won the Gold Medallion Book Award for excellence. Strobel asks one thing of each reader - remain unbiased in your examination of the evidence. In the end, judge the evidence for yourself, acting as the lone juror in the case for
We're all called to be a juror and TESTIFY to the TRUTH!
See you all April 10th!
