Tiger Woods is arguably the greatest golfer of all time.  He had a meteoric rise to fame, success, and wealth.  For 683 weeks he was the number one golfer in the world. 

 

Then life crashed in around him.  He was caught in scandal.  His wife left him.  He suffered a string of injuries that necessitated multiple surgeries including four on his back.  Some wondered if he would ever walk again, much less compete in golf. 

 

He fell out of the top 1,000 golfers in the world.  For eleven years he failed to win a single major tournament.  His career was as good as dead.

 

Until last Sunday.

 

He teed it up against the world’s best at the Masters.  In a fairytale-like ending he came from behind to win his fifth green jacket—22 years after he won his first.  Most sports commentators say that this is the greatest comeback in all of sports history. 

 

But, let me be clear, as great as is Tiger’s redemption story, there is a greater comeback story than that. 

 

And it happened on a Sunday morning too!

 

It is the story of Jesus—once dead now raised to life! Now that’s a comeback story for the ages!

 

British sports writer Jim White said, “Tiger Woods’ Masters’ triumph showed yet again why there is no greater storyline than redemption.” 

 

I couldn’t agree more.  Redemption is the greatest storyline in sports and life!  And Jesus’ resurrection makes possible our redemption!

 

Join us this Sunday for Easter at Istrouma as we celebrate history’s actual greatest comeback!

 

Easter at Istrouma

“The Resurrection of Jesus”

Luke 24:1-12

 

  1. Empty tomb

And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus(24:2-3).

 

  1. Explanation 1: Confusion
  2. Explanation 2: Conspiracy
  3. Explanation 3: Comeback
  1. Expected triumph

He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, 7 that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise (24:6-7).

 

  1. That was foretold
  2. That was fulfilled
  1. Excited testimony

And they remembered his words, 9 and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest(24:8-9).

 

  1. Remember his words
  2. Return his witnesses
