Newsletter for April, 2017
19The Apostle Paul puts it bluntly: “If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.”
Wouldn’t we all feel foolish and a little silly if tomorrow we learned that Jesus just died and stayed that way? What if we convinced ourselves that Christianity is just a hoax, God is just a myth, and faith is, as Marx said, “The opiate of the people?”
We would be wrong. Paul tells us “20But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have died.”
Without a doubt, the cross killed him. The Roman soldiers saw to that. But many witnesses (including Peter, James, and John) died confessing that Jesus was dead but is now alive. The gospel’s details differ, but the bottom line is the same: Christ died, and Christ is risen! Celebrate new life this Easter!
