Resurrection Stories for Easter Season

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ
There are at least 12 different appearances of Christ in the resurrection accounts, beginning with Mary Magdalene and ending with Paul. These were physical, tangible experiences with Christ eating, speaking and allowing himself to be touched. Yet, in many of these appearances, Jesus is not recognized at first. If Jesus visited you today, would you recognize him?

Jesus Raises Lazarus from the Dead
This Bible story summary teaches us a lesson about persevering through difficult trials. Many times we may feel like God waits too long to answer our prayers and deliver us from a terrible situation. But there aren't many problems worse than Lazarus' -- he had been dead for four days before Jesus showed up!

What Did Lazarus See?
Wouldn't you have been eager to know just what Lazarus saw during those four days he ventured into the afterlife? Curiously, the Bible doesn't reveal what Lazarus saw after his death and before Jesus raised him back to life. But it does make plain one very important truth about heaven.

Waking Lazarus by T.L. Hines
T.L. Hines made a grand entrance onto the novelist stage with his first book, debuting in an interesting genre: supernatural suspense fiction. Not many books have the power to hook you from the first sentence, but this one does. Jude Allman is immune to the power of death. He has died three times and each time comes back to life. Intrigued? Consider picking up a copy.
