“Thus, it is written that the Christ would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins, would be preached in his name to all the nations beginning in Jerusalem.” Jesus was calling upon his Apostles to be true disciples spreading his Good News of love and forgiveness. He was calling them to be preachers as he is now calling all of us to preach the Good News to all.
This gospel passage proclaims the heart of our faith. What we hear proclaimed is the report of an empty tomb. If you already believe, the empty tomb makes sense. Mark tells us far more than we may imagine, and at the same time less. Have you ever noticed that no gospel describes the resurrection itself, an event that is terribly difficult for us to imagine? The New Testament writers certainly believed and taught that Jesus rose from the dead. They also understood his resurrection not to be a simple resuscitation, but a transformation. What the risen Christ became was unlike what he had been before he died on the cross.
This evening, we came into a dark church, a reminder that for a while Jesus Christ was absent from the world after dying on the cross. Soon after Deacon Larry entered holding aloft the Easter candle, that darkness was dispelled. The solitary flame of his candle quickly spread throughout the church. For me, few moments in the year are as moving as this sign of the risen Christ touching the lives of so many through the help of others.
