If The Tomb Is Empty

Why The Resurrection Means Anything Is Possible


The Son of God was crucified, died, and buried, and He lay in the tomb for three days—until He walked out shining like the sun. In a culture in which history is erased or rewritten at will, the existence of an empty tomb matters. Why?

Because if the tomb is empty—then anything is possible.

In his new book, Pastor Joby dives deep into Scripture and traces the story of salvation by highlighting the seven mountains throughout Scripture where God manifests Himself. As he describes each encounter with God, Pastor Joby shows us how the interaction on each mountain laid the groundwork for the sacrifice of Christ on Calvary, and shows what God revealed about Himself in the process.

He illuminates seven familiar passages, unveiling how God’s plan for Christ’s resurrection impossible, unbelievable - means that nothing is too hard for our God. Ultimately, he asks listeners, Do you live every day of your life as if the tomb is empty...or as though Jesus is still hanging on that cross?
