Today's Bible reading: Mark 16:1-8
From our perspective - as we look back in faith - we see the resurrection as the logical and glorious highlight of Holy Week: the restoration of paradise lost … the vindication of God’s messianic son.
So, it may come as a bit of a surprise to us to realize that Easter came as quite a “shocker” to Jesus followers – despite having told them numerous times that He would rise from the dead. The empty tomb didn’t immediately provide answers … it posed problems. As a matter of fact, Mark’s Gospel basically ends with the women running away from the empty tomb in fear, and not saying anything to anyone!
Prayer: He is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
GOD BLESS YOUR DAY!
