Sermons on Easter
1 Peter 2:4-8 Peter builds on the metaphor established earlier by Jesus, who called the revelation that He is the living God the stone upon which His church would be built. Pastor Rod Bunton relates this Easter message to Peter’s assertion that this living cornerstone separates the believer from the non-believer.
Revelation 5 Jesus, who is called the “Lion of Judah” in the book of Revelation, was also called the “Lamb that was slain.” Pastor Rod Bunton explains the history and significance of that name and its importance to Resurrection Sunday.

Mark 16:1-11, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, 15-20 ~ The death of Jesus on the cross was an amazing sacrifice that paid the debt for sinners in the past, in the present, and in the future and yet, without the resurrection that followed, it would have accomplished nothing. Pastor Rod Bunton explains this critical part of the gospel and why we can trust that it really happened.
