Everything Rests on the Resurrection

What is the crux of our faith? Pulling from Paul’s Letter to the Corinthians, Jeff shares how the resurrection is the center of our faith and how to understand it better. He also offers encouragement for each of us to prepare for our own death and resurrection.
