WHAT JESUS LOOKS LIKE
The heart of the Gospel is the Risen Christ. The key to Revelation is the Unveiled Jesus. Meet in Revelation 1:9-18 the gloriously unveiled Risen Jesus in all His glory. But first, let’s start with the Tomb.
THE TOMB -IS EMPTY

10. Jesus’ brother James 1 Corinthians 15:7
11. Those who watched Jesus ascend into heaven Luke 24:44-49; Acts 1:3-8
