RELIGION: Trinity Baptist to present Easter Cantata and observe pastor’s 10th anniversary this Sunday

March 22, 2013

BROADWAY BAPTIST CHURCH
In John 11 we read of the death of Lazarus and how Martha and Mary were standing at the tomb mourning the death of their brother. Christ arrives and Mary says, “Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.” This troubled Christ and he wept. He wept, not over the death of Lazarus for he knew what was about to happen, but for the unbelief of the people. Later Martha and Christ are at the tomb, and she expresses her belief in the resurrection. Christ takes a moment to move that belief from doctrinal to personal when he says, “I am the resurrection.”
