Full text of renowned evangelist Billy Graham’s sermon titled “The Death and Resurrection of Christ” which was delivered on a rainy night in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in the year 1970.
Notable quote from this message:
“Because you see, man is in rebellion against God. Adam and Eve rebelled in the garden of Eden. And every man since Adam and Eve has broken God’s law and sinned against God. And as a result of that, God and man are separated. And man’s only way back to God is through Jesus Christ.”

Billy Graham – Evangelist
My message is going to be brief, and my text is going to be Luke, the 23rd chapter beginning at verse 42.
Luke 23:42-43: “Remember me when Thou comest into Thy kingdom.” And Jesus said unto him, “Verily, I say unto thee, today thou shalt be with Me in paradise.”
The greatest and most historical event of all of history, was when Jesus Christ died on that cross. And when Christ died on the cross, the lightning flashed, the thunder roared, the darkness came.
As the nails had gone into the hands of Christ and a spear had gone into His side and the nails through His feet. And Jesus was hanging between heaven and earth suffering for us. The soldiers had taken Him out of His prison and they put a crimson robe on Him, they’d beaten Him two or three times.
And then they took two or three murderers with Him. Two of them in particular, who were going to be crucified with Him. And then they took Him across Jerusalem and they made each one of them bear a placard, or at least herald went before them to bear a placard telling of their crimes.
