Is There Life After Death?

August 2, 2015 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: The Gospel of Mark

Scripture: Mark 12:18–12:27

Is There Life After Death?
Mark 12:18–27
August 2, 2015

Introduction:

I. The Sadducees test Jesus. Mark 12:18–23

II. Jesus offers a three-fold response:

     A. The rebuke: You don’t know your Bible or the power of God. Mark 12:24

     B. The reality of resurrection and life after death. Mark 12:25

     C. The rationale rooted in Scripture. Mark 12:26–27

Questions for reflection:

  • What does this passage teach us about Jesus?
  • Jesus rebuked the Sadducees for not knowing their Bibles or the power of God. If Jesus were here today, could He rebuke us for the same reasons? What do I need to do in order to grow in knowledge of the Scriptures and the power of God?
  • What was Jesus’ view of the resurrection and the future life to come?
