Small Town Theologian with Jonathan Shirk

Hosted ByJonathan Shirk

Allowing the Biblical truths of the Heidelberg Catechism to shape our theology and Christian living.

STT 071 – Did Jesus Really Die or Was He Just Unconscious (HC LD 16, QA 40-44)?

This episode is about finding comfort in the death of Christ. Jesus actually died on the cross and his burial confirmed his physical death. This is central to the Christian faith and the Christian’s comfort.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS FOR FAMILY WORSHIP: (1) How would it impact the Christian faith if Christ didn’t actually die? (2) How would it impact your comfort in life and death if Jesus didn’t actually die? (3) Is it possible to believe in Jesus and his moral teachings without also believing in his death? (4) Do you agree that unbelief is never about evidence but always about avoiding moral restraints?
