Message delivered by Elder David Wise at Tyler PBC in Tyler, TX on 1/24/2021. All of Christianity hinges on one event – the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It’s because Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead that we have a hope of eternal life and a hope of the resurrection of the dead. We don’t sorrow as others that have no hope when loved ones pass away, but we joyfully anticipate the second coming of Jesus Christ and the final resurrection of the dead and glorification of the elect.
