He Lives!

August 12, 2017

The Easter call is clear: Jesus lives! The experience of those first disciples was that, after his death, Jesus was now within each of them and is now within each of us. However that experience has been described and explained, whether by reading Gospel stories literally or metaphorically, the experiences were and are real.

Clarence Jordan, New Testament scholar and translator of Cotton Patch Gospels once wrote, “The proof that God raised Jesus from the dead is not the empty tomb, but the the full hearts of the transformed disciples. The crowning evidence that he lives is not a vacant grave, but a spirit-filled fellowship, not a rolled-away stone, but a carried-away church.”

“Know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.”  [John 14:20]
