I have seen the Lord

Easter Sunday
Three close followers of Jesus see the same spectacle, but their responses are different. John saw just what Peter saw, but his seeing produced believing. He is our example in the kind of seeing that carefully weighs the evidence. When Peter and John have both gone home, Mary Magdalene remains before the open, empty tomb. Then follows one of the most dramatic personal encounters in the Bible. The Good Shepherd calls his sheep by name … and she knows his voice. Jesus rose to be trusted in and personally known.
