Jews had prayed for him, hoped for him, and looked for him for generations. But now the one who said he was the Messiah was dead—killed by the very ones who had for so long anticipated his coming. For his disciples, three years of following Christ seemed to end in despair.

And then they found the empty tomb. The Messiah was alive!

Every year, James Boice wanted to get across to his congregation, in a fresh and relevant way, the impact of the discovery of that empty tomb. He made it his goal to surprise and excite his hearers every time they heard it. His sermons on this topic form the basis of this book—one that will revive your own excitement for the significance of Jesus' victorious resurrection from the dead.

The Christ of the Empty Tomb presents the resurrection as a non-negotiable fact of history—ably refuting arguments against it, explaining apparent discrepancies, and focusing your thoughts on the real reason for the Easter celebration: our justification and deliverance.


“In a special way Jim’s ministry was framed by Easter. . . . Jim preached his first sermon as Tenth’s new pastor on Easter Sunday. . . . On Easter Sunday [of 2000] he preached both morning services . . . and he was not able to preach from Tenth’s pulpit again. . . . Jim’s ministry at Tenth began on Easter and ended on another Easter. How gracious of the Lord to reassure us, through the promise of that heavenly timing, that death has been swallowed up in victory.” —Linda M. Boice (from the foreword)
