Jesus guides disciples and us toward a deeper understanding of his Resurrection
by Renae Bauer
On the first Easter morning, Mary of Magdala believes someone had taken Jesus’ body from the tomb so she informs Peter and another disciple. Later, she encounters the Risen Lord and believes in the Resurrection. Peter and the other disciple go to the tomb and see the burial cloths: one believes, the other doesn’t understand. Next week, we’ll hear Thomas declare that he needs proof of Jesus’ Resurrection.
Their Easter questions can be our questions. Reflect for a moment on this image and ask: When have you and I, like Mary of Magdala or Peter, needed time to understand Jesus’ message? When have you and I, like Thomas, requested proof? When have you and I, like the younger disciple, been motivated by love of Jesus which led to deeper faith?
Easter blessings to all!
I like your photo reflection. Good question about times we have a challenge understanding Jesus's message.
