No Funeral Sermons in the Bible
As a young man, D. L. Moody was suddenly called upon to preach a funeral sermon. He hunted all through the Four Gospels trying to find one of Christ’s funeral sermons, but searched in vain. He found that Christ broke up every funeral He ever attended. Death could not exist where He was. When the dead heard His voice they sprang to life. Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life” (John 11:25). (Encyclopedia of Illustrations #10514).
