Calendar on M Jesus is risen; now Christians look to Pentecost chronicle staff report On March 27, Christians worldwide cele brated Easter, or Resurrection Sunday, a day they say Jesus the Christ rose from the dead more than 2,000 years ago.

Renewed Health Lesson Scripture: Luke 7:1-10 By the end of this les son, we will ?Understand that the Lord is able to heal peo ple when He chooses to do so. ?Recognize the importance of faith and God's will when praying for healing. ?Pray for physical needs with full confi dence that the Lord can heal. Background: Jesus has been tempted during His 40-day fast. Jesus has taught in the synagogue in Nazareth and so angered the people with His declaration of being the fulfillment of prophesy that they take Him to a cliff and are ready to throw Him off. In Capernaum Jesus healed many and performed the miracle of the fishes, where He said to Simon, "Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a draught. V (Luke 5:4) Jesus has started to gather His twelve and is now forgiv ing sin: "Man thy sins are forgiven thee." (Luke 5:20); in short Jesus' pop ularity is building. After spending an entire night praying alone on the mountain, Jo6us comes down and names His apostles. Then He taught the "Sermon on the Plain." (Luke 6:17-49) Lesson: Jesus is in Capernaum and hears about a centurion who has a sick servant. All indication is that the centurion is a believer and has heard of Jesus' fame. We already think positively of the centu rion because of his concern for his servant, who is sick unto death with the palsy. To accredit him even more, a group of Jewish elders approach Jesus on his behalf. By See Lesson on M ?? Elder I Richard Wayne Wood Sunday School Lesson 'III
