Easter Tuesday – John 20:11-18

Monday of Lent 4 – Mark 12:18-27

ShareMark 12:18-27 I’m glad that here, towards the end of Lent and even before Easter, we are able to celebrate the resurrection.  The main point of Jesus’ answer to the Sadducees was, of course, that there is indeed a resurrection from the dead to eternal life.  This is so plain from the New Testament that […]

Wednesday of Trinity 11 – Luke 22:14-30

ShareLuke 22:14-30 Personally, I find time a very confusing creation.  I look back to when I bought my first Beatles record in 1974, and it seemed as if the Beatles must have at that date been broken up for an entire generation.  In fact, it had been 4 years.  But now it’s been 35 years […]

Tuesday Trinity 11 – Luke 22:1-13

ShareLuke 22:1-13 It feels strange to approach so close to Easter while still in summer!  Now that Jesus has commanded the disciples to make the Passover ready, I can smell Holy Week in this passage, for there is an indescribable and terrible feeling of holiness I feel whenever Holy Week is here. And why shouldn’t […]

Thursday of Trinity 10 – Luke 20:27-40

ShareLuke 20:27-40 It’s refreshing to see the words and logic of someone else besides the Pharisees fail.  This time it’s the Sadducees.  Actually, after Jesus decisively answers the Sadducees, it is really Strike Three.  In Luke 20:1-8, the chief priests and scribes take a swing at Jesus and miss.  In Luke 20:20-26, it’s a swing […]

Monday of 5th Sunday in Lent – 1 Corinthians 15:12-19

Share1 Corinthians 15:12-19 “Theology’s not important.”  I’ve heard a lot of statements to that effect before. Well, here’s a little theology: Jesus Christ is risen! No, not a little theology, a lot of theology.  So central is the Resurrection of Jesus Christ which we will celebrate in Easter in two short weeks, and which we […]
