Raised: in glory


Yesterday, we continued our Raised series, looking at the resurrection of Jesus and what it means for us. As Paul answers the question 'How are the dead raised?' he shows us what our resurrection body will be like - or rather, whose it will be like. Raised: in glory is from 1 Corinthians 15: 35-49 and is available for you to listen.
