This Resurrection Existence - A Bible Study Series

'On the simplest of levels Jesus's resurrection is straightforward good news - Jesus was dead; now he is alive. This simple but mind-blowing fact remains at the heart of the resurrection, but there is more to it than even that. Jesus's resurrection points us to a new way of looking at the world, a new of being that changes who we are and how we live in the world.' writes Paula Gooder in her book 'This Resurrection Existence' (2015)

With Paula Gooder (writer and lecturer in biblical studies) as our guide, this study invites us to delve deeper into the fullness of the resurrection and to explore the impact it had on the first believers and can have on believers today. Through focusing on the writings of Matthew, Luke and Paul, we can look from different perspectives, and also see how the resurrection, ascension and Pentecost are inextricably linked. And through it discover that 'this risen existence' is not just his but ours, as we become people who bear resurrection with us wherever we go.
