Date: 03/31/2013, Easter Sunday
Preacher: Monty Simao, elder
Key Text: Luke 24 and Zechariah 3:1-10
Description: Easter Sunday, the resurrection of Christ, solves the problem of tension that existed among the Old Testaments prophets concerning the coming of the Messiah. The prophets prophesied that the coming Messiah would be a suffering servant who would be scourged, smitten, beaten, and pierced and yet he would also be a conquering king. How could these two apparent contradictions in description possibly be? The answer is found in Easter.
