Easter Bible Studies #1 – Death and Resurrection of the Messiah by Ray Vander Laan

In the Death and Resurrection of the Messiah study, Ray Vander Laan takes you on a journey to the Holy Land — from the Sea of Galilee, to Caesarea Philippi, to the Mount of Olives, to Gethsemane. As he traces Jesus’ steps in this ten-session study (part of the That the World May Know series), Ray shares his vast knowledge of Israel’s culture, history, geography, and Jewish social customs in a beautiful story-telling way that will give you new insights into His life… and His death and resurrection… and how those profound, historical, world-rocking events can affect your life today.

Lessons include:

• When Storms Come – Sea of Galilee
• Piercing the Darkness – Kursi
• Gates of Hell– Caesarea Philippi
• City of the Great King Part 1 – The Temple
• City of the Great King Part 1 – Jerusalem
• The Lamb of God – Mount of Olives

Easter Bible Studies #3 – He Chose the Nails by Max Lucado

From Creation to today, God has showered us with His love. The crowning act of His love, of course, was the gift of the Cross. Who would have imagined that a crude instrument of execution would be so dearly treasured for thousands of years afterward? But, who also could have imagined the depths of Jesus’ love for His people expressed in His sacrifice? In this five-session study, Max Lucado dives deep into the gifts of the Cross — the thorns, the nails, the robe, the empty tomb. There isn’t a part of Jesus’ journey through hell to His resurrection that isn’t miraculous and an unfathomable gift… of love… just for you!
