The Climax of Matthew’s story

With chapter 28 we come to the end of Matthew’s report of his Nazarene teacher Jeshua ben Josef, whom he at first had not yet recognised as the future king of this earth (the king of the Jews). First he had thought this Nazarene was going to liberate them from the Romans and be their king in their age.

Often they had wondered what their master meant when he talked about events to come. Many things he said also did not become clear until God had left His Pneuma come over them.

The apostles did know that the Hebrew Scriptures explained everything that they had to know, but they were pleased that their rabboni took all the time to explain the things which were not yet so clear for them or where there was much dispute between them and the Pharisees.

For many people it was and it still is

 “seeing is believing”

and they had seen incredible things, which they also did not always understand how these things could happen. Their master assured them he could not do those things without his heavenly Father, Who is much greater than him and all other gods.

“Therefore, Jesus answered them: “I tell you this truth: The Son is unable to do anything from himself unless he sees something the Father is doing. For whatever that One may do, it is possible the Son also may do likewise.” (Joh 5:19 mhm)

“You apostles heard that I said to you, ‘I am departing and I am returning to you apostles.’ If you loved me you would certainly rejoice, because I am going toward the Father, because the Father is greater than me.” (Joh 14:28 mhm)

Several times they had seen that Jesus had done miracle works, and each time Jesus had told the people to whom he had done it, not to thank him but to thank God. In modern times this should have those who think Jesus is God already wonder why Jesus said not to thank him but God. Also, Jesus his mentioning that God is greater than him should raise questions about the possibility that Jesus would be God.

The one in whom they had put so much hope now had died and by his death, all their expectations seemed to have crashed. (Again for those who think that Jesus is God, should wonder if He then faked His death and for what cause, because God cannot die but Jesus did.) Mary, the mother of Jesus and Mary Magdalene were witnesses of that horrible death of Christ. They were close to the stake on which Jesus was nailed like a criminal.

All the time they had seen Jesus humble and presenting himself as a servant of God, saying he was not here to be served, but also telling them he was been authorised by God.

“Just as the Son of Humankind came not to be served but to serve and to sacrifice his soul as a ransom in the place of many.”” (Mt 20:28 mhm)

God cannot be seen, but this Son of Humankind was seen by lots of people, to whom he told he was coming to declare his heavenly Father the Only One True God, the God of Israel Who is One. With his death, there came an end for all those people to see this great storyteller. All were assured it was finished now with this man. But that is without counting on God and without believing in the prophecies which tell a totally different story.

Naturally, the Romans were afraid that Jesus body would disappear and that the followers of that Nazarene would then tell he rose from the dead. Pilate had agreed that Jesus could be buried but listened also to the Pharisees who were afraid something could happen with that killed man. On the day after the preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered together with Pilate, and said that they remembered that when that preacher was still alive ‘that deceiver’ had said that after three days he would rise again.  Therefore, they hoped that Pilate would give orders for the grave to be made secure until the third day, lest the disciples come and steal him away and say to the people that their master has risen from the dead. As such the last deception will be worse than the first. For that reason, Pilate ordered to have guards making sure nobody could or would temper with that son of man.
Pilate ordered the grave to make it as secure as those guards know how and set a seal on the stone which was very heavy and blocked the entrance to the tomb.

“62 On the next day–after Preparation–the religious hierarchy and Pharisees assembled together before Pilate, 63 saying, “Lord, we remember that plotter said when he was alive, ‘After three days I will be raised up.’ 64 So, command that the grave be secured until the third day so none of his disciples can come and steal his body and then claim to the people, ‘Jesus was raised up from the dead.’ Then the final plot will be worse than the first.” 65 Pilate said to them: “You have a custodial guard. Go and make the security as you know how.” 66 These went their way and secured the grave, sealing the stone with the custodial guards.” (Mt 27:62-66 mhm)

The women who came to the grave were very surprised and could not think what would have happened to their master. Their mentioning to have found an empty tomb spread very quickly. This also because some of the guards came into the city and reported to the chief priests all that had happened. And when they had assembled with the elders and counselled together, the religious hierarchy gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, for them to tell the people that the Nazarene his disciples came by night and stole him away while they were asleep. From Matthew’s storyline, we hear that the Pharisees were also willing to protect the guards in case the governor would want to punish them for not being on guard. The guards did not mind the money and did as they had been instructed. This way this story was widely spread among the Jews, as it will be to the day Matthew wrote his book.

“11  While the women were on their way, look! some of the custodial guards entered the city of Jerusalem and reported back to the religious hierarchy everything that had happened. 12 Now in a conference with the Jewish elders they took counsel. They agreed to give plenty of money to the soldiers, 13 telling them, “Say that his disciples came in the night and stole his body while you were sleeping. 14 And if this ever reaches the governor we will convince him and you need not fear.” 15 Those soldiers took the silver money and did as they were told. And just so the rumor spread around among the Jews down to this very day.” (Mt 28:11-15 mhm)

Matthew, in his gospel book, had looked at the family tree of their master and had given a review of all those happenings which should get us to think about the role of that man about whom was spoken already much in the ancient Hebrew writings. Matthew gave a picture from John’s preaching and baptism of Jesus. He also showed how Jesus was tested and how a higher position was offered to him, which he refused, because it is only given to God to give such positions. Often Jesus was surrounded by crowds, who could hear him tell lots of stories. He gave them sermons that should make them think about how to treat others as well as how to relate to God. For Matthew, it had become clear that the true treasures were to be sought in heaven. Therefore, he wrote down how Jesus advised seeking the Kingdom, but also how he warned to be careful and to be aware of the difficulties to go through the narrow gate.

All those things Matthew wrote down so that people could come to see that their master was the one spoken about in the Garden of Eden. (Later on, Jesus good friend John would go deeper into that in his gospel.) Matthew by those few years had come to see and understand that Jesus was that promised man coming from the root of King David.

In his gospel he not only shows how the 12 apostles were called but also how they got ministerial instructions. Following those instructions not to fear but to go out in the light and to preach from the housetops, the writing of his gospel was part of that preaching work, making sure people could come to know the full story.

“26 So, you should not fear them. For there is nothing concealed which will not be revealed, and nothing hidden which will not become known.27 What I tell you in the dark, tell in the light; and, what your ear hears, preach on the housetops.28 Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul. Rather, continue to fear the One capable of destroying both soul and body in Gehenna. (Mt 10:26-28 mhm)

“16  Now the eleven disciples traveled to Galilee to the mountain where Jesus had arranged to meet them. 17 When they saw Jesus they bowed to the ground before him but some doubted. 18 Upon approaching Jesus he said to them, “All authority in heaven and upon earth was given to me.19 Therefore, go your ways and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing persons in the name of the Father, the Son and the holy Pneuma.20 Teach them to observe everything I commanded you. And, look! I am with you apostles until the consummation of the Age.” (Mt 28:16-20 mhm)

There was now enough to teach about and for. Now all stories Jesus had told them seemed to fit and all the references to the scrolls made sense.

With the last chapter of his gospel Matthew comes to present the “bomb”, the full reason why it is so important to believe in his master. With everything Jesus had said, people should be able to come to see the things to God and to understand how Jesus Christ fits in the Plan of God. Woe to the scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites who can be found in every period of time.

“27 “WOE to you hypocritical Scribes and Pharisees because you are like whitewashed graves which outside seem to appear beautiful but within are full of the bones of the dead every uncleanness!28 Just so you also give the appearance to others of righteousness but inside you are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness!29 “WOE to you hypocritical Scribes and Pharisees because you build the graves of the prophets and decorate the memoriums of the righteous.30 You also claim, ‘If we had lived in the days of our forefathers we would never have been guilty of the blood-letting of the prophets.’31 So you provide evidence against yourself that your are sons of those who murdered the prophets.32 Now, live up to the example your forefathers!33 “Serpents, born of vipers, how will you escape the judgment of Gehenna? 34  Because of this, look! I am sending to you prophets, wise persons, and scribes. You will kill some of them, others you will impale, and still others you will scourge in your synagogues. You will persecute from city to city.35 As a result there will come upon you all the righteous blood poured out on earth–from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah (son of Barachiah) whom your murdered between the Divine Habitat and the altar.36 I tell you this truth: all this will come upon this generation! (Mt 23:27-36 mhm)

The prophet Jesus was impaled, but now the good news could come to mankind. Jesus had an open heart for all and gave himself as a ransom, so that all people could come under the grace of salvation. The price Jesus paid made it able to become free.

Through Christ’s death people now could bcome adopted as a child of God

What the ladies came to see was something the whole world had to hear. All over should the cries be heard:

Jesus is risen

At that time, just after the burial of their master they did not yet understand the impact of this all.

“10 Now these included Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James and also the others with them. They told the apostles everything, 11 but all their words seemed like a lot of foolishness to them and so they did not believe them. 12 [[However Peter rose and ran to the memorial tomb. He bent forward and saw only the linen wrappings. Then he left wondering what had happened.]]” (Lu 24:10-12 mhm)

Event after the event made the good news spread and they come to believe that the impossible had become possible.

“33 That very hour they got up and returned to Jerusalem and found the eleven apostles assembled together with other disciples. 34 They told them, “The Master has truly risen and he has appeared to Simon!” 35 And so they began to explain everything that happened while on the road and how Jesus had revealed himself to them by the breaking of the bread.” (Lu 24:33-35 mhm)

Having seen that Jesus came back from the dead, was now evidence that everything he had told was a word of truth, given by instruction and inspiration of God. For Matthew and the other disciples of Christ it had become clear that they had to do with the Prophetic truth, Jesus being in line with king David, being the sent one from and anointed one of God, or the Christ.

We too should come to see who Jesus really was and is; and why we should honour him for what he has done. We also should come to see and understand how this rising of Christ is an example of what can happen to us. Jesus is the first one of the new world or the first for the newborn generation. With him, we can find hope in a renewed world and a restored paradise. With Matthew’s account, we should have a full picture of the 2° Adam. The 28th chapter being the culmination or the climax to which all the previous chapters and also several Old Testament books point at.

Now we come to learn that it is possible that a man can step out of death. In case Jesus would be God, then naturally we still would not have any proof of such thing. But here it is given to us, even while the Romans did everything to have people believe that what believers said happened to be false. But in such case they would not be willing to risk their life. They were sure that something magical happened and were prepared to die for telling the truth. The Nazarene had told he was the resurrection and the life and that those who would believe in him were going to live, even though when they died.

“25 Jesus said to Martha: “I am the Resurrection and the Life. The person who continues to believe in me, though dying, will live.26 Also, everyone living who continues to believe in me, will never die throughout all future periods of time. Do you believe this?” (Joh 11:25-26 mhm)

The fact that it were first women who discovered the empty grave is in a way also interesting, because for Jews women had low status and legally didn’t qualify to be witnesses. But here Matthew notates them to have been the first witnesses. If the disciples were manufacturing or embellishing this story, undoubtedly they would not given those women the honour and would have claimed that men had discovered the empty tomb, because their testimony would have been considered much more credible. Recording the then-embarrassing fact that women first saw the tomb empty is just one more indication that the biblical writers were committed to accurately recording what had actually happened.

Historically it was clear for everybody that somehow the guarded grave had become empty. The Romans and the higher hierarchy with the Pharisees wanted Jesus death but not heaving him disappeared. The Jewish leaders wouldn’t have taken the body because this would give their Jewish brethren who followed Jesus reason to say he was risen out of the dead. A lot of people wanted the Nazarene Jew Jeshua (Jesus) to stay dead. For them, instead of stealing or doing a way with the body it would have been even nicer to parade through the streets with Jesus’ corps. Parading with Jesus’ lifeless body down the main streets of Jerusalem would have instantly killed the growing Jewish movement of Nazoreers (or Jewish sect The Way).

For the apostles, that body of their master having disappeared would be a disaster. It would give them nothing in their hands to prove that Jesus was who he said and that could happen all the things he had said would happen.
We may be sure, in case they had taken away the body, they would have told so under torture, because keeping such a lie and to die for such a charade would be asked too much.

A deliberate cover-up, a plot to perpetrate a lie about the raising of Christ, could not have survived the violent persecution of the apostles and their followers. In later years we also could find hundreds of people who were cast to the lions and got to fight for their life, whilst they could be free when they denied the story of the resurrection of their lord.

Throughout the years following this event told in the last chapter of Matthew, thousands of people refused to renounce the lordship of Christ.

Peter and John also had come to the grave and had checked it out for themselves. They too saw it was empty. But they, with others, came to see their master again. Over a period of forty days this man who had been impaled appeared alive a dozen different times to more than 500 individuals  —  to men and women, to believers and doubters, to tough-minded people and tenderhearted souls, to groups, to individuals, sometimes indoors and sometimes outdoors in broad daylight.

Doctor Luke would later write down what happened further with their master and with them who now came to believe even stronger than they did before. But until today the gospel of Matthew is the opening book of a new era, the Messianic Time, by which he showed that Jesus is really that promised son of God, who did all the time the Will of God, to be His humble servant and faithful slave.

MT28:18 Upon approaching Jesus he said to them, “All authority[3] in heaven and upon earth was given to me.

THE END OF THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW

*

[1] To meet them: Compare the additional information in the gospel of Luke 24:12-49 and John 20:1-21:19.

“Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, and he went away, wondering to himself what had happened.” (Lu 24:12 NIV)

“1  Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance. 2 So she came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved, and said, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!” 3 So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. 4 Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. 5 He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. 6 Then Simon Peter, who was behind him, arrived and went into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, 7 as well as the burial cloth that had been around Jesus’ head. The cloth was folded up by itself, separate from the linen. 8 Finally the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went inside. He saw and believed. 9 (They still did not understand from Scripture that Jesus had to rise from the dead.) 10 Then the disciples went back to their homes, 11  but Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb 12 and saw two angels in white, seated where Jesus’ body had been, one at the head and the other at the foot. 13 They asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?” “They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put him.” 14 At this, she turned round and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not realise that it was Jesus. 15 “Woman,” he said, “why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?” Thinking he was the gardener, she said, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will get him.” 16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned towards him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher). 17 Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet returned to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” 18 Mary Magdalene went to the disciples with the news: “I have seen the Lord!” And she told them that he had said these things to her. 19  On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 20 After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. 21 Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” 22 And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive anyone his sins, they are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.” 24 Now Thomas (called Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it.” 26  A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” 28 Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” 29 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” 30 Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. 31 But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. 21:1  Afterwards Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Tiberias. It happened this way:” (Joh 20:1-21:1 NIV)

[2] They bowed to the ground before him: The Greek is PROSEKUNESAN (to bow before and kiss).

[3] All authority: Note this celestial and terrestrial authority has been given the Risen Lord. It is not something he possessed before. Compare Ephesians 1:20-22.

[4] Go your ways and make disciples: These instructions are directed to the eleven apostles.

[5] In the name of: This was never a formula used by these apostles in their baptizing. The recorded Acts shows they always baptized “in the name of Jesus.” Therefore, this pronouncement is likely more of an authorization or commission upon the apostles. Regarding so-called triune formulas research the phrase.

[6] Teach them to observe everything I commanded you: It seems this suggest preliminary instruction before a person is baptized. A Christian should at least know the “commandments” of Jesus. Indeed, the Friends of the Nazarene are those who observe his commandments (John 15:14).

[7] I am with you: These words are directed to his eleven apostles not necessarily a statement to all disciples throughout all time. See notes on Matthew 18:20.

[8] Until the consummation of the Age: The Greek is TES SYNTELEIAS TOU AIONOS. Judging from Matthew 24:3 (Daniel 9:26, 27) and Hebrews 9:26, 27 Jesus means the Jewish Temple Age which ended in 70 CE (1 Corinthians 10:11; Hebrews 1:2). Research last days. Or, KJV: the end of the world; RHM: conclusion of the age; RIEU: to the end of time; WEY: until the close of the Age. This does not mean the King has abandoned his disciples throughout the Gospel Age until the consummation of the Age at his Parousia and the angelic Harvest (see notes on Matthew 13:40).

Luke 24:45-49 adds, “Then he opened up their minds fully to grasp the meaning of the Scriptures, and he said to them: ‘In this way it is written that the Christ would suffer and rise from among the dead on the third day, and on the basis of his name repentance for forgiveness of sins would be preached in all the nations-starting out from Jerusalem, you (apostles) are to be witnesses of these things. And, look! I am sending forth upon you (apostles) that which is promised by my Father. You (apostles), though, abide in the city until you (apostles) become clothed with power from on high.’” (NW)

“1  and when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the [mother] of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. 2 and very early in the morning, the first [day] of the week, they came to the sepulcher at the rising of the sun: 3 and they said among themselves, who shall roll away for us the stone from the door of the sepulcher?” (Mark 16:1-3 Webster)

“the first [day] of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, to the sepulcher, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulcher.” (John 20:1 Webster)

“and if this shall come to the governor’s ears, we will persuade him, and secure you.” (Matthew 28:14 Webster)

“1  now upon the first [day] of the week, very early in the morning, they came to the sepulcher, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain [others] with them. 2 and they found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher. 3 and they entered in, and found not the body of the lord Jesus. 4 and it came to pass, as they were much perplexed at this, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments. 5 and as they were afraid, and bowed down [their] faces to the earth, they said to them, why seek ye the living among the dead? 6 he is not here, but is risen. remember how he spoke to you when he was yet in Galilee, 7 saying, the son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. 8 and they remembered his words, 9 and returned from the sepulcher, and told all these things to the eleven, and to all the rest.” (Luke 24:1-9 Webster)

“39 but he answered and said to them, an evil and adulterous generation seeketh for a sign, and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 for as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly: so shall the son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth {sheol/hell}. ” (Matthew 12:39-40 Webster)

“23 him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of god, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: 24 whom god hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be held by it. 25 for David speaketh concerning him, I saw the lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: 26 therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also, my flesh shall rest in hope: 27 because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thy holy one to see corruption: 28 thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou wilt make me full of joy with thy countenance. 29 men, brethren, let me freely speak to you concerning the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulcher is with us to this day. 30 therefore being a prophet, and knowing that god had sworn to him with an oath, that from the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; 31 he seeing this before, spoke of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither did his flesh see corruption. 32 this Jesus hath god raised up, of which we all are witnesses. 33 therefore being by the right hand of god exalted, and having received from the father the promise of the holy spirit, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. 34 for David did not ascend into the heavens, but he saith himself, the LORD said to my lord, sit thou on my right hand, 35 until I make thy foes thy footstool. 36 therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that god hath made that same Jesus whom ye have crucified, both lord and Christ.” (Acts 2:23-36 Webster)

“3 concerning his son Jesus Christ our lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh. 4 and declared [to be] the son of god, with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:” (Romans 1:3-4 Webster)

“1  moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also ye have received, and in which ye stand; 2 by which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached to you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 for I delivered to you first of all, that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures; 4 and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 5 and that he was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve: 6 after that he was seen by above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain to this present, but some have fallen asleep. 7 after that he was seen by James; then by all the apostles. 8 and last of all he was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time. 9 for I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of god.” (1 Corinthians 15:1-9 Webster)

“3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulcher. 4 so they ran both together: and the other disciple outran Peter, and came first to the sepulcher. 5 and he stooping down, saw the linen cloths lying; yet he went not in. 6 then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulcher, and seeth the linen cloths lying; 7 and the napkin that was about his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 8 then went in also that other disciple who came first to the sepulcher, and he saw, and believed. 9 for as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.” (John 20:3-9 Webster)

“11  but Mary stood without at the sepulcher weeping: and as she wept she stooped down [to look] into the sepulcher, 12 and seeth two angels in white, sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain. 13 and they say to her, woman, why weepest thou? she saith to them, because they have taken away my lord, and I know not where they have laid him. 14 and when she had thus said, she turned herself about, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus saith to her, woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? she, supposing him to be the gardener, saith to him, sir, if thou hast borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. 16 Jesus saith to her, Mary. she turned herself, and saith to him, Rabboni, which is to say, master. 17 Jesus saith to her, touch me not: for I have not yet ascended to my father: but go to my brethren, and say to them, I ascend to my father and your father, and [to] my god and your god. 18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the lord, and [that] he had spoken these things to her.” (John 20:11-18 Webster)

“28  ye have heard that I said to you, I go away, and come [again] to you. if ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go to the father: for my father is greater than I. 29 and now I have told you before it cometh to pass, that when it hath come to pass, ye may believe. 30 hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. 31 but that the world may know that I love the father; and as the father gave me commandment, even so I do. arise, let us go hence.” (John 14:28-31 Webster)

“25 these things have I spoken to you in proverbs: but the time cometh when I shall no more speak to you in proverbs, but I shall show you plainly concerning the father. 26 at that day ye will ask in my name: and I say not to you, that I will pray the father for you: 27 for the father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came from god.
28  I came forth from the father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the father.” (John 16:25-28 Webster)

“13 and no man hath ascended to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, [even] the son of man who is in heaven. 14 and as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the son of man be lifted up: 15 that whoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:13-15 Webster)

“15 I pray not that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them from the evil. 16 they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17  sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18 as thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19 and for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified through the truth.” (John 17:15-19 Webster)

“19  then the same day at evening, being the first [day] of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and saith to them, peace [be] to you. 20 and when he had so said, he showed to them [his] hands and his side. then were the disciples glad when they saw the lord. 21 then said Jesus to them again, peace [be] to you: as [my] father hath sent me, even so I send you.” (John 20:19-21 Webster)

“1  the spirit of the lord GOD [is] upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to publish good tidings to the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to [them that are] bound; 2 to proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our god; to comfort all that mourn; 3 to appoint to them that mourn in Zion, to give to them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.” (Isaiah 61:1-3 Webster)

“search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” (John 5:39 Webster)

“the LORD thy god will raise up to thee a prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like to me; to him ye shall hearken.” (Deuteronomy 18:15 Webster)

“18 and Jesus came, and spoke to them, saying, all power is given to me in heaven and upon earth. 19 go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, and of the son, and of the holy spirit. 20 teaching them to observe all things whatever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, [even] to the end of the world. amen.” (Matthew 28:18-20 Webster)

“1  thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2 and the things that thou hast heard from me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” (2 Timothy 2:1-2 Webster)

“hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard from me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.” (2 Timothy 1:13 Webster)

“24 but Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 the other disciples therefore said to him, we have seen the lord. but he said to them, except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.
26  and after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: [then] came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, peace [be] to you. 27 then saith he to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust [it] into my side; and be not faithless, but believing. 28 and Thomas answered and said to him, my lord and my god. 29 Jesus saith to him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed [are] they that have not seen, and [yet] have believed.” (John 20:24-29 Webster)

“(for we walk by faith, not by sight:)” (2 Corinthians 5:7 Webster)

“8 whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see [him] not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable, and full of glory: 9 receiving the end of your faith, [even] the salvation of [your] souls.
10  concerning which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace [that should come] to you: 11 searching what, or what manner of time the spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. 12 to whom it was revealed, that not to themselves, but to us they ministered the things which are now reported to you by them that have preached the gospel to you, with the holy spirit sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.” (1 Peter 1:8-12 Webster)

“and when she had thus said, she turned herself about, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.” (John 20:14 Webster)

“and as they were thus speaking, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith to them, peace [be] to you.” (Luke 24:36 Webster)

“43 and he took [it], and ate before them. 44 and he said to them, these [are] the words which I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and [in] the prophets, and [in] the psalms, concerning me. 45 then he opened their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 46 and said to them, thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 and ye are witnesses of these things. 49 and behold, I send the promise of my father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye are endued with power from on high.
50  and he led them out as far as to Bethany: and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. 51 and it came to pass, while he was blessing them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. 52 and they worshiped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: 53 and were continually in the temple, praising and blessing god. amen.” (Luke 24:43-53 Webster)

“19  so then after the lord had spoken to them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of god. 20 and they went forth, and preached every where, the lord working with [them], and confirming the word with signs following. amen.” (Mark 16:19-20 Webster)

“30 moreover, whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
31  what shall we then say to these things? if god [is] for us, who [can be] against us? 32 he that spared not his own son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33 who will lay any thing to the charge of god’s elect? [it is] god that justifieth: 34 who [is] he that condemneth? [it is] Christ that died, or rather that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of god, who also maketh intercession for us. 35 who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 as it is written, for thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 but in all these things we are more than conquerors, through him that loved us. 38 for I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 nor hight, nor depth, nor any other creature, will be able to separate us from the love of god which is in Christ Jesus our lord.” (Romans 8:30-39 Webster)

  • The Significance of the Resurrection – Jesus Arose Where He Died (darrellcreswell.wordpress.com)
    Death is an all encompassing word, powerful by definition, feared by most, yet totally incapacitated by the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Blood of Christ revives our spirit, restores our inheritance, and renews our life. In Christ our rebirth is a great resuscitation that overcomes and redefines death; opening the pathway to an eternity with our Redeemer.
  • The Resurrection of Jesus X 4 (thisisrealmedia.com)
    There is no greater story than the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  It is the story that means the most to all Christians.  It is the story of a wonderful redeemer, who loved mankind enough to die for us.
  • The Power of His Resurrection (zionsgate.wordpress.com)
    We would all have loved to be there on the road to Emmaus that day, walking with the resurrected Jesus himself as he detailed the different prophecies that concerned his death and resurrection. Still, the apostles and other New Testament writers do a good job of filling us in. The Old Testament is filled with prophecies and types of Jesus’ suffering and death and resurrection as payment for the sins of the world, and the New Testament points those out.
  • The Glory of Easter Part 2 (thepuritaninprada.wordpress.com)
    “The happy ending of the Resurrection is so enormous that it swallows up even the sorrow of the Cross.” – Tim Keller
    +
    The Resurrection is not a consolation for suffering, the Resurrection is not even a removal of suffering, the Resurrection swallows suffering.” –  Tim Keller – The Hope of Glory
    +

    Christ swallowed our suffering and it became a part of him and made him greater. And this is the Glory of the Cross, it shows that everything that you have ever been through will only make you greater in the end.  It means all your sorrows, pains, heartbreaks, disappointments, injustices, suffering, agony will somehow only make you greater in the end through the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. That’s a defeat!

  • The Resurrection of Jesus Christ (jlue.wordpress.com)
    For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.
  • -Re: Easter and The Resurrection of Jesus Christ (answersforthefaith.com)

    Then on my Bible Q& A page I have listed a number of key questions and answers for the Easter season:

    <-Easter Questions and Answers>

  • Holy Trifecta: Good Friday, Passover, Resurrection Sunday (rightistblog.wordpress.com)
    This weekend, Christians around the world will gather to remember the death and rejoice in the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Over two thousand years ago, Christ died on the cross at Calvary as the payment for the sins of all people.  He was placed in the tomb, and three days later, conquered death and rose from the dead!  This weekend, as we gather with our families and loved ones, let us not forget what Christ’s triumph over death means: everlasting life for all those who believe.
  • When Was Jesus Crucified? (verse4psalm37.wordpress.com)
    I’m convinced that Christ was in the tomb three days and three nights.  To begin with, a day on the Hebrew calendar is from sundown to sundown (Genesis 1: 5), while a day on the Gregorian calendar is from midnight to midnight.  So the Last Supper/Passover meal was held after sundown (Tuesday on the Gregorian calendar; Wednesday on the Hebrew calendar.)   Jesus died on the cross at 3 p.m.  Wednesday.  He was placed in the tomb before sundown because the following day was a special Sabbath, the first day of the  Feast of Unleavened Bread.  Therefore, Christ was in the grave Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.  He arose from the dead before dawn on the first day of the week (Sunday).  (For a timeline, click on http://www.centuryone.com).
  • Even Resurrection Pauses For Sabbath Rest (godspace.wordpress.com)
    Even resurrection pauses for Sabbath rest, in the Episcopal Relief and Development Lenten guide this morning, that today, for the Jews is indeed the sabbath day. This full day of Jesus time in the grave is the day into which all their hope and longing for the future is poured. A day to look forward with anticipation to the day when God does indeed make all things news.
  • “The Resurrection” (bradneel610.wordpress.com)
    Jesus really did die on the cross for our sins, was buried, and three days later rose.

    I’m so thankful that my hope and joy does not rest in an Easter bunny. But a risen King.

  • Pesach

    I imagine that the death of Jesus was still sad in heaven even though they knew the whole plan. Suffering is sorrowful. I don’t really know what was happening while Jesus was dead so I won’t try to guess here.

Après le sabbat après la Pesach ou Pâque, la résurrection de Jésus-Christ

“1  Après que le sabbat fut passé, Marie de Magdala, Marie, mère de Jacques, et Salomé, achetèrent des aromates pour venir embaumer le corps. 2 Et elles vinrent au sépulcre de grand matin, le premier jour de la semaine, comme le soleil venait de se lever. 3 Et elles disaient entre elles : Qui nous ôtera la pierre de l’entrée du sépulcre ?” (Markus 16:1-3 OST)

“Le premier jour de la semaine, Marie de Magdala vint le matin au sépulcre, comme il faisait encore obscur ; et elle vit la pierre ôtée du sépulcre.” (Johannes 20:1 OST)

“Et si cela vient à la connaissance du gouverneur, nous le gagnerons et nous vous tirerons de peine.” (Matthäus 28:14 OST)

“1  Mais le premier jour de la semaine, elles vinrent de grand matin au sépulcre, apportant les parfums qu’elles avaient préparés ; et quelques personnes les accompagnaient. 2 Et elles trouvèrent que la pierre qui était à l’entrée du sépulcre avait été ôtée. 3 Et étant entrées, elles ne trouvèrent point le corps du Seigneur Jésus. 4 Et comme elles ne savaient qu’en penser, voici, deux hommes se présentèrent à elles, en vêtements étincelants. 5 Et comme elles étaient effrayées, et qu’elles baissaient le visage contre terre, ils leur dirent : Pourquoi cherchez-vous parmi les morts celui qui est vivant ? 6 Il n’est point ici, mais il est ressuscité. Souvenez-vous de quelle manière il vous a parlé, lorsqu’il était encore en Galilée, 7 Disant : Il faut que le Fils de l’homme soit livré entre les mains des méchants, et qu’il soit crucifié, et qu’il ressuscite le troisième jour. 8 Et elles se souvinrent de ses paroles. 9 Et étant revenues du sépulcre, elles racontèrent toutes ces choses aux onze, et à tous les autres.” (Lukas 24:1-9 OST)

“39 Mais lui, répondant, leur dit : Une race méchante et adultère demande un miracle ; mais il ne lui en sera accordé aucun autre que celui du prophète Jonas. 40 Car comme Jonas fut dans le ventre d’un grand poisson trois jours et trois nuits, ainsi le Fils de l’homme sera dans le sein de la terre trois jours et trois nuits.” (Matthäus 12:39-40 OST)

“23 Ce Jésus livré par la volonté déterminée et selon la prescience de Dieu, vous l’avez pris, et, l’ayant attaché à la croix par les mains des iniques, vous l’avez fait mourir. 24 Mais Dieu l’a ressuscité, ayant rompu les liens de la mort, parce qu’il n’était pas possible qu’il fût retenu par elle. 25 Car David dit de lui : Je voyais toujours le Seigneur devant moi, parce qu’il est à ma droite, afin que je ne sois point ébranlé. 26 C’est pourquoi mon cœur s’est réjoui, et ma langue a fait éclater sa joie, et ma chair aussi reposera en espérance ; 27 Parce que tu ne laisseras point mon âme dans le sépulcre, et que tu ne permettras point que ton Saint voie la corruption. 28 Tu m’as fait connaître le chemin de la vie ; tu me rempliras de joie devant ta face. 29 Hommes frères, il est permis de vous dire avec assurance, quant au patriarche David, qu’il est mort, et qu’il a été enseveli, et que son sépulcre est encore aujourd’hui parmi nous. 30 Mais étant prophète, et sachant que Dieu lui avait promis avec serment qu’il ferait naître le Christ de sa postérité selon la chair, pour le faire asseoir sur son trône ; 31 Prévoyant cela, il dit de la résurrection du Christ, que son âme ne serait point laissée dans l’enfer, et que sa chair ne verrait point la corruption. 32 Dieu a ressuscité ce Jésus ; nous en sommes tous témoins. 33 Élevé donc à la droite de Dieu, et ayant reçu du Père la promesse du Saint-Esprit, il a répandu ce que vous voyez et entendez maintenant. 34 Car David n’est point monté au ciel, mais il dit lui-même : Le Seigneur a dit à mon Seigneur : Assieds-toi à ma droite, 35 Jusqu’à ce que j’aie fait de tes ennemis le marchepied de tes pieds. 36 Que toute la maison d’Israël sache donc avec certitude que Dieu a fait Seigneur et Christ ce Jésus que vous avez crucifié.” (Apostelgescht 2:23-36 OST)

“3 Touchant son Fils, né de la race de David selon la chair, 4 Et, selon l’esprit de sainteté, déclaré Fils de Dieu avec puissance, par sa résurrection des morts, savoir, Jésus-Christ notre Seigneur,” (Römer 1:3-4 OST)

“1  Je vous rappelle, frères, l’Évangile que je vous ai annoncé, et que vous avez reçu, et dans lequel vous persévérez, 2 Et par lequel vous êtes sauvés, si vous le gardez tel que je vous l’ai annoncé ; autrement, vous auriez cru en vain. 3 Or, je vous ai enseigné, avant toutes choses, ce que j’avais aussi reçu : que Christ est mort pour nos péchés, selon les Écritures ; 4 Et qu’il a été enseveli, et qu’il est ressuscité le troisième jour, selon les Écritures ; 5 Et qu’il a été vu de Céphas, puis des douze ; 6 Ensuite, il a été vu en une seule fois de plus de cinq cents frères, dont la plupart sont encore vivants, et dont quelques-uns sont morts. 7 Ensuite, il s’est fait voir à Jacques, et puis à tous les apôtres ; 8 Et après tous, il m’est apparu à moi aussi comme à un avorton. 9 Car je suis le moindre des apôtres, moi qui ne suis pas digne d’être appelé apôtre, parce que j’ai persécuté l’Église de Dieu.” (1 Korinther 15:1-9 OST)

“3 Alors Pierre sortit avec l’autre disciple, et ils allèrent au sépulcre. 4 Et ils couraient tous deux ensemble ; mais cet autre disciple courut plus vite que Pierre, et arriva le premier au sépulcre. 5 Et s’étant baissé, il vit les bandelettes qui étaient à terre ; mais il n’entra point. 6 Mais Simon Pierre, qui le suivait, étant arrivé, entra dans le sépulcre, et vit les bandelettes qui étaient à terre, 7 Et le suaire qu’on lui avait mis sur la tête, lequel n’était pas avec les autres linges ; mais plié dans un endroit à part. 8 L’autre disciple, qui était arrivé le premier au sépulcre, entra aussi, et il vit, et il crut. 9 Car ils n’avaient pas encore compris l’Écriture, portant qu’il fallait que Jésus ressuscitât des morts.” (Johannes 20:3-9 OST)

“11  Cependant Marie se tenait dehors, près du sépulcre, en pleurant ; et comme elle pleurait, elle se baissa dans le sépulcre, 12 Et elle vit deux anges vêtus de blanc, assis l’un à la tête, et l’autre aux pieds, au lieu où le corps de Jésus avait été couché. 13 Et ils lui dirent : Femme, pourquoi pleures-tu ? Elle leur dit : Parce qu’on a enlevé mon Seigneur, et je ne sais où on l’a mis. 14 Et ayant dit cela, elle se retourna, et vit Jésus debout ; mais elle ne savait point que c’était Jésus. 15 Jésus lui dit : Femme, pourquoi pleures-tu ? Qui cherches-tu ? Elle, croyant que c’était le jardinier, lui dit : Seigneur, si tu l’as emporté, dis-moi où tu l’as mis, et je le prendrai. 16 Jésus lui dit : Marie ! Et elle, s’étant retournée, lui dit : Rabbouni ! c’est-à-dire, mon Maître ! 17 Jésus lui dit : Ne me touche point, car je ne suis pas encore monté vers mon Père ; mais va vers mes frères, et dis-leur que je monte vers mon Père et votre Père, vers mon Dieu et votre Dieu. 18 Et Marie de Magdala vint annoncer aux disciples qu’elle avait vu le Seigneur, et qu’il lui avait dit cela.” (Johannes 20:11-18 OST)

“28  Vous avez entendu que je vous ai dit : Je m’en vais, et je reviens à vous. Si vous m’aimiez, vous vous réjouiriez de ce que j’ai dit : Je vais au Père ; car mon Père est plus grand que moi. 29 Et je vous l’ai dit maintenant, avant que la chose arrive, afin que, quand elle sera arrivée, vous croyiez. 30 Je ne parlerai plus guère avec vous, car le prince de ce monde vient ; mais il n’a rien en moi. 31 Mais afin que le monde con-naisse que j’aime le Père, et que je fais ce que le Père m’a commandé, levez-vous, partons d’ici.” (Johannes 14:28-31 OST)

“25 Je vous ai dit ces choses en similitudes ; mais le temps vient que je ne vous parlerai plus en similitudes, mais je vous parlerai ouvertement du Père. 26 En ce jour vous demanderez en mon nom, et je ne vous dis point que je prierai le Père pour vous, 27 Car le Père lui-même vous aime, parce que vous m’avez aimé, et que vous avez cru que je suis issu de Dieu.
28  Je suis issu du Père, et je suis venu dans le monde ; je laisse de nouveau le monde, et je vais au Père.” (Johannes 16:25-28 OST)

“13 Or personne n’est monté au ciel, que celui qui est descendu du ciel, savoir, le Fils de l’homme qui est dans le ciel. 14 Et comme Moïse éleva le serpent dans le désert, de même il faut que le Fils de l’homme soit élevé, 15 Afin que quiconque croit en lui ne périsse point, mais qu’il ait la vie éternelle.” (Johannes 3:13-15 OST)

“15 Je ne te prie pas de les ôter du monde, mais de les préserver du malin. 16 Ils ne sont pas du monde, comme je ne suis pas du monde.
17  Sanctifie-les par ta vérité ; ta parole est la vérité. 18 Comme tu m’as envoyé dans le monde, je les ai aussi envoyés dans le monde. 19 Et je me sanctifie moi-même pour eux, afin qu’eux aussi soient sanctifiés par la vérité.” (Johannes 17:15-19 OST)

“19  Le soir de ce jour, qui était le premier de la semaine, les portes du lieu où les disciples étaient assemblés étant fermées, par crainte des Juifs, Jésus vint, et se présenta au milieu d’eux et leur dit : La paix soit avec vous ! 20 Et quand il eut dit cela, il leur montra ses mains et son côté. Les disciples donc, voyant le Seigneur, eurent une grande joie. 21 Il leur dit de nouveau : La paix soit avec vous ! Comme mon Père m’a envoyé, je vous envoie aussi.” (Johannes 20:19-21 OST)

“1  L’Esprit du Seigneur, de l’Éternel, est sur moi ; car l’Éternel m’a oint, pour annoncer la bonne nouvelle aux affligés. Il m’a envoyé pour guérir ceux qui ont le cœur brisé, pour proclamer aux captifs la liberté, et aux prisonniers l’ouverture de la prison ; 2 Pour proclamer l’année de la bienveillance de l’Éternel et le jour de la vengeance de notre Dieu ; pour consoler tous ceux qui sont dans le deuil ; 3 Pour présenter à ceux de Sion qui sont dans le deuil et pour leur donner le diadème au lieu de la cendre, l’huile de joie au lieu du deuil, le manteau de louange au lieu d’un esprit abattu ; tellement qu’on les appellera les chênes de la justice, les arbres plantés par l’Éternel pour le glorifier.” (Jesaja 61:1-3 OST)

“Vous sondez les Écritures, parce qu’en elles vous croyez avoir la vie éternelle, et ce sont elles qui rendent témoignage de moi.” (Johannes 5:39 OST)

“L’Éternel ton Dieu te suscitera un prophète comme moi, du milieu de toi, d’entre tes frères ; vous l’écouterez ;” (5Mose 18:15 OST)

“18 Et Jésus, s’approchant, leur parla et leur dit : Toute puissance m’a été donnée dans le ciel et sur la terre ; 19 Allez donc et instruisez toutes les nations, les baptisant au nom du Père, du Fils et du Saint-Esprit, 20 Et leur apprenant à garder tout ce que je vous ai commandé ; et voici, je suis avec vous tous les jours jusqu’à la fin du monde. Amen !” (Matthäus 28:18-20 OST)

“1  Toi donc, mon fils, fortifie-toi, dans la grâce qui est en Jésus-Christ. 2 Et les choses que tu as entendues de moi, en présence de plusieurs témoins, confie-les à des hommes fidèles, qui soient capables aussi d’enseigner les autres.” (2 Timotheus 2:1-2 OST)

“Retiens dans la foi, et dans la charité qui est en Jésus-Christ, le modèle des saines instructions que tu as entendues de moi.” (2 Timotheus 1:13 OST)

“24 Or, Thomas, l’un des douze, appelé Didyme, n’était pas avec eux lorsque Jésus vint. 25 Les autres disciples lui dirent donc : Nous avons vu le Seigneur. Mais il leur dit : Si je ne vois la marque des clous dans ses mains, et si je ne mets mon doigt dans la marque des clous, et si je ne mets ma main dans son côté, je ne le croirai point.
26  Huit jours après, ses disciples étaient de nouveau dans la maison, et Thomas était avec eux. Jésus vint, les portes étant fermées, et se tint au milieu d’eux et dit : La paix soit avec vous ! 27 Puis il dit à Thomas : Mets ici ton doigt, et regarde mes mains ; avance aussi ta main, et la mets dans mon côté, et ne sois pas incrédule, mais croyant. 28 Thomas répondit et lui dit : Mon Seigneur et mon Dieu ! 29 Jésus lui dit : Parce que tu m’as vu, Thomas, tu as cru. Heureux ceux qui n’ont pas vu, et qui ont cru !” (Johannes 20:24-29 OST)

“(Car nous marchons par la foi, et non par la vue).” (2 Korinther 5:7 OST)

“8 Que vous aimez, sans l’avoir connu, en qui vous croyez, sans le voir encore, et vous vous réjouissez d’une joie ineffable et glorieuse, 9 Remportant le prix de votre foi, le salut de vos âmes.
10  C’est de ce salut que se sont informés et enquis les prophètes, qui ont prophétisé touchant la grâce qui est en vous ; 11 Recherchant, pour quel temps et quelles conjonctures l’Esprit de Christ qui était en eux, et qui rendait témoignage d’avance, leur révélait les souffrances de Christ, et la gloire dont elles seraient suivies. 12 Et il leur fut révélé que ce n’était pas pour eux-mêmes, mais pour nous, qu’ils étaient dispensateurs de ces choses, qui vous ont été annoncées maintenant par ceux qui vous ont prêché l’Évangile, par le Saint-Esprit envoyé du ciel, et dans lesquelles les anges désirent plonger leurs regards.” (1 Petrus 1:8-12 OST)

“Et ayant dit cela, elle se retourna, et vit Jésus debout ; mais elle ne savait point que c’était Jésus.” (Johannes 20:14 OST)

“Comme ils tenaient ces discours, Jésus lui-même se présenta au milieu d’eux, et leur dit : La paix soit avec vous.” (Lukas 24:36 OST)

“43 Et l’ayant pris il en mangea en leur présence. 44 Puis il leur dit : C’est là ce que je vous disais lorsque j’étais encore avec vous, qu’il fallait que tout ce qui a été écrit de moi dans la loi de Moïse et dans les prophètes et dans les psaumes, fût accompli. 45 Alors il leur ouvrit l’esprit, pour qu’ils comprissent les Écritures. 46 Et il leur dit : Ainsi est-il écrit, et ainsi fallait-il que le Christ souffrît, et qu’il ressuscitât des morts le troisième jour, 47 Et qu’on prêchât en son nom la repentance et la rémission des péchés, parmi toutes les nations, en commençant par Jérusalem. 48 Or, vous êtes les témoins de ces choses ; et voici, je vais vous envoyer ce que mon Père a promis. 49 Pour vous, demeurez dans la ville de Jérusalem, jusqu’à ce que vous soyez revêtus de la vertu d’en haut.
50  Il les mena ensuite dehors jusqu’à Béthanie ; puis, élevant ses mains, il les bénit. 51 Et il arriva, comme il les bénissait, qu’il se sépara d’eux, et fut élevé au ciel. 52 Et eux, l’ayant adoré, s’en retournèrent à Jérusalem dans une grande joie. 53 Et ils étaient continuellement dans le temple, louant et bénissant Dieu. Amen.” (Lukas 24:43-53 OST)

“19  Le Seigneur, après leur avoir parlé, fut élevé au ciel, et il s’assit à la droite de Dieu. 20 Et eux, étant partis, prêchèrent partout ; le Seigneur opérant avec eux, et confirmant la Parole par les miracles qui l’accompagnaient.” (Markus 16:19-20 OST)

“30 Et ceux qu’il a prédestinés, il les a aussi appelés ; et ceux qu’il a appelés, il les a aussi justifiés ; et ceux qu’il a justifiés, il les a aussi glorifiés.
31  Que dirons-nous donc sur cela ? Si Dieu est pour nous, qui sera contre nous ? 32 Lui, qui n’a point épargné son propre Fils, mais qui l’a livré pour nous tous, comment ne nous donnera-t-il point toutes choses avec lui ? 33 Qui accusera les élus de Dieu ? Dieu est celui qui les justifie. 34 Qui les condamnera ? Christ est mort, et de plus il est ressuscité, il est même assis à la droite de Dieu, et il intercède aussi pour nous. 35 Qui nous séparera de l’amour de Christ ? Sera-ce l’affliction, ou l’angoisse, ou la persécution, ou la faim, ou la nudité, ou le péril, ou l’épée ? 36 Selon qu’il est écrit : Nous sommes livrés à la mort tous les jours à cause de toi, et nous sommes regardés comme des brebis destinées à la tuerie. 37 Au contraire, dans toutes ces choses nous sommes plus que vainqueurs, par celui qui nous a aimés. 38 Car je suis assuré que ni la mort, ni la vie, ni les anges, ni les principautés, ni les puissances, ni les choses présentes, ni les choses à venir, 39 Ni la hauteur, ni la profondeur, ni aucune autre créature, ne pourra nous séparer de l’amour de Dieu manifesté en Jésus-Christ notre Seigneur.” (Römer 8:30-39 OST)

  • Easter Echoes (paradisemtnmusings.wordpress.com)
    One of my favorite Easter memories is from last year- getting up at 5;30 to head out on the dock with Steve, Valerie and their 4 children and serenading all of Santa Rosita with Easter songs as the sun rose.. I can imagine somewhere a little Latino lady pausing in the midst of her early morning tortilla making to listen to the faint strands of music and shake her head and think “gringos!” ;) (my understanding of that word would be “white people” )
  • Odd Gospel Greek: a few notes on Μαρία ἡ Μαγδαληνὴ (bltnotjustasandwich.com)
    a few notes on Μαρία ἡ Μαγδαληνὴ and other Greek phrases in the 20th chapter of the gospel of John.  The KJV is given [with a few, sometimes odd gospel Greek phrases interpolated].
    +
    Miriam’s mistake is reasonable given the context, the location of the tomb in a garden presumably and the first day of the work week.  However, the gospel writer’s Greek is odd.  This is a hapax legomenon, the only use of this word in all of the NT or the LXX.
    +
    Rabboni which is to say, Master [Ἑβραϊστί Ραββουνι ὃ λέγεται, Διδάσκαλε] – Much secondary literature has offered copious commentary on this phrase.  The KJV translators were working from MSs that lacked  Ἑβραϊστί, which is a Johnnine term for a Hebraic language (whether Hebrew or Aramaic can’t be determined just by the Greekish word here).   Ἑβραϊστί  is likely Greek-lettered Aramaic, an attempt to sound out what Miriam uttered in surprise.  The Greek translation is given as Διδάσκαλε, which suggests a trainer in a school, a disciplined educator, in Greek contexts.
    +
    my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God [τὸν πατέρα μου καὶ πατέρα ὑμῶν, καὶ θεόν μου καὶ θεὸν ὑμῶν]. – The KJV English cannot show the plurality of the pronoun ὑμῶν, which makes clear in Greek that Joshua is equating his Father, his God, with the Father and God of all the sisters and all of the brothers.  The odd thing about the Greek language here is how it is a personal, anthropomorphic, familial universal identification with a god.
  • He Has Risen (cindylivingstoneministries.wordpress.com)
    Be not afraid: go tell my brethren
  • Carissimi; Today’s Mass: Easter Monday (frjeromeosjv.wordpress.com)
    Among the early Christians the Easter festivities were prolonged for the entire week; to no other feast was so much solemnity given.
    +
    The Lamb the sheep redeemeth: Christ, who only is sinless, reconcileth sinners to the Father.
    Death and life contended in that conflict stupendous: the Prince of Life, who died, deathless reigneth.
  • “Christ Is Our Passover Lamb” / The Message of the High Sabbath beginning the eve of March 25, 2013
    The early Christian church, established in 31 A.D., followed Christ’s example and observed the Passover. Again, the Encyclopedia Britannica states: “The sanctity of special times was an idea absent from the minds of the first Christians who continued to observe the Jewish festivals, though in a new spirit…” (See Leviticus 23 for an explanation of those festivals).
  • Jesus is alive, the tomb is empty.
    The ten or more recorded appearances of the resurrected Christ to His disciples, the amazing change of demeanor of the disciples from that of fearful hideaway to fearless evangelists, the worldwide spread of the Christian faith as founded on the resurrection,
  • It Did Not End In the Grave (astorybyme.wordpress.com)
    Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the entrance.
