He Is Risen!
The literal, historical, physical resurrection of Jesus Christ is a load of nonsense.
Not anti-sense (the opposite of sense). Not un-sense (the absence of sense). But non-sense: something Wholly Other – bigger, and more Glorious, than sense can taxonomify, and pin to a piece of wood in a museum…
I believe in the literal, historical, physical resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is the most delightful, joyful – and powerful – nonsense the world has ever known…
“It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them who told this to the apostles. But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense.”
Luke 24:10, 11
Holy Week , Easter Sunday , foolishness to the greeks
