Easter | The Wonder

April 9 2023

Book: Luke

Scripture: Luke 24:1-12

The Biblical story reaches its narrative peak with the resurrection of Jesus, without which ‘let us eat and drink for tomorrow we die.’ (1 Corinthians 15:32)  Luke’s account of the resurrection reveals how it was unexpected (‘they did not believe the women’)  and wonderful.   Mary Magdalene, Jesus’ mother Mary, Salome and Peter all see the empty tomb and ‘wonder’ about it.  Easter is a celebration of the wonder of Jesus’ promise to overcome death through resurrection.
