…from glory to glory

“…That…you may have Life in His Name…”

… for such a time as this… 

…Jesus the Risen King

(The Gospel Project for Kids – Fall 2017 Quarter)

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” 

1 Corinthians 15.3-4

Bible Passage: John 20.24-31

jesus & thomasOn the day that Jesus rose again from the grave, He appeared to His disciples in the upper room, and He showed them that He is truly alive; He is not a ghost. Thomas was not there at that time…

The disciples told Thomas of Jesus’ living appearance, but Thomas wanted to touch Jesus’ wounds before he would trust their story…

Eight days later, Jesus’ disciples were gathered again, and Thomas was present. Jesus came into the room and told Thomas to touch the wounds in His hands and His side. He told Thomas to stop doubting and to believe…

Jesus helped Thomas to believe His power over death…

We who know Jesus is the Risen King must tell others, and pray God’s help for them to believe…


Jesus is the Risen King because He took up His life again…

To show that He has overcome the corruption of this world…

To show that He has overcome the power of our own Nasty I-SIN heart

and our own doubt…

To show that He has overcome the power of Satan (Genesis 3.15)…

To show that He has overcome the despairs of death and hell…

…These are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ–the Messiah–the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.”

–John 20.31
