Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life." (John 11:25
Not Stallings, however. He was in a tizzy. He paced up and down the press box with his hands clasped to his head. "I can't," he wailed. "I can't write it! It's too big."
The writers of the four gospels probably felt that same emotion as they put quill to parchment to tell the last chapter of Jesus' story on earth. "It's too big. How do you tell it?" How do you describe something as earth shaking as the resurrection story? Christ has been raised from the dead!
Each of the four gospels tells the story a little differently. For me that adds authenticity to the story. This is no carefully crafted tale. This is reality--confusing, complex, chaotic.
Will we allow the resurrection story to profoundly affect our lives?
God of hope, may the resurrection story give me the hope I need to live each day to its fullest. In Jesus' name, Amen.
