John 11 (April 6, 2014)

Introduction: John 11: Lazarus

The book of John is both the easiest and hardest book of the Bible to read. The author speaks plainly, yet pointedly. As we journey through this study say this simple prayer: God speak to me, because I am listening.

Stuff Phil said:

“ What if what we know about life and death isn’t true.”

“We have been taught that death is bad…what if those things we believe about anxiety and fear aren’t what Jesus taught.”

“What if what we know about anxiety and fears keeps us from living the life that Jesus wants.”

“What if the idea that death is bad, life is good is a lie.”
