History, Theology and Need – Three Perspectives on Easter
Easter Sunday 2018 – sermon by David Varney.
This sermon sets out to show that we must understand that Easter, before it is anything, is a historic event. The whole of the Christian faith rises and falls on the fact of the empty tomb. Easter is more than history – it is history rich with meaning – theology.
After considering the history and theology behind the Easter event, we are provoked to think through the need for Easter: why did it all happen, and how should we position our lives as a response?
