The Bible is full of amazing truths, great stories, and stunning statements. Perhaps none more stunning than these 3:
- “I am Joseph! Is my father still living?” Genesis 45:3
The first 3 words of this verse may be the 3 most stunning words in scripture, “I am Joseph!” Imagine the shock on the faces of his brothers when learning that the one they sold into slavery and presumed to be dead for years was now the second most powerful person in Egypt.
Note: for a great book focusing on the life of Joseph, check out You’ll Get Through This by @MaxLucado
- “The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood.” John 1:14 (The Message)
Note: take a look at these 3 books focusing on the life of Jesus.
- “He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.” Matthew 28:6
The women went to the tomb that morning to anoint his dead body with spices NOT to see if he was ALIVE! Try to fathom their emotions when they discovered the truth of the resurrection (“they didn’t see that coming!”).
Note: take a moment to watch this short video by Rob Bell called Resurrection.
