Scripture Lesson: 1 Corinthians 15:3-8
On this date in 1982, passing Hank Aaron, Pete Rose becomes the all-time leader in plate appearances when he steps up to the plate for the 13,941st time.
Paul is reminding the Romans of the resurrection and the events that followed. Jesus appeared to Peter, then the rest of the disciples, after that he appeared to over 500 believers, then to James and the rest of the apostles, and last of all Jesus appeared to Paul on the Damascus Road. Paul went in this great detail about Jesus’ appearances after his resurrection to prove to the Romans that Jesus was raised from the dead and that He lives. Many people witnessed the risen Lord, including Paul. Those events were proof that Jesus not only died but God raised Him from the dead.

2. Why was it important for Paul to list the appearances of Jesus?
3. How does God speak to us today?
Many witnesses saw the Risen Lord. May people see the evidence of the Risen Lord today by the way we live our lives!
