Rise From the Dead?

September 23, 2008 Leave a comment

Until after Jesus’ resurrection, even his closest followers did not entirely understand what “rising from the dead” meant.

It seems crystal-clear today, but beforehand, the thought of coming back to life from death must have been incomprehensible.  As I think about it, if I actually saw someone rise from the dead, I’d be pretty freaked out and a bit sceptical.

Before criticizing the disciples for their reaction in verses 9-10, I should consider seriously how difficult a time I’d have beliving and understanding Jesus under the same set of circumstances.
