Encouragement on Easter Sunday
I was thrilled to hear my church's pastor emphasize the physical nature of Jesus' resurrection, in contrast to a mere spiritual resurrection (a contradiction in terms to a first century Palestinian Jew). His resurrection is an archetype of our own: "And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you." (Romans 8:11). Happy Easter!
