EYEWITNESS TESTIMONY is of course the strongest of testimonies! The New Testament Church grew as the Holy Spirit used the eyewitness testimonies of those who had SEEN JESUS ALIVE after having personally seen him crucified and dead. This is what motived the disciples and apostles to preach the resurrection of Jesus – even to their own imprisonment and death! And so, we too have the privilege and responsibility to pass along these testimonies of Jesus’ death and resurrection – for the forgiveness of our sins and the salvation of our souls!
