This Saturday 4.23.11 @ Gather

The resurrection of Jesus is the single most important event in the history of the world.  Oddly enough, it is also very under-understood.  While this is certainly true of us today, it is also true of the very first people that discovered that Jesus’ body was not in the grave.  The resurrection of Jesus was so radical and so beyond the expectations of the day that people met it with wonder.  As is the case with things that don’t turn out the way we expect them, there was to be some serious reorientation that would have to take place to account for what happened.  The need to reorient ourselves to the resurrection of Jesus is just as true today as it was then.  However, it seems that instead of us being reoriented to the resurrection of Jesus, we have reoriented his resurrection to us.  What we have here is a failure to communicate the message clearly.  Jesus’ resurrection is the most important event in the history of the world and the one thing that helps us make some sense of our lives and the world around us–let’s not miss it!

    Who rises from the dead? No one I’ve ever known or heard of. I would like to think I would have more faith than Jesus’ disciples but then again, If I was expecting something other than what took place I might have the same reaction. After all I catch myself putting God in a box all the time. Makes you wonder!
