"' I am the way, and the truth, and the life.'" John 14:6a (NRSV)
These are the words I remember this Easter Sunday.
When Jesus was raised from the dead.
Like so many dictators and tyrants the Pharisees and the Romans assumed that death was the end. They had dealt with the threat to their power and that was the end of it.
But on Easter Sunday Jesus rose from the dead.
And passed into eternal life.
This was the action of God in response to the murderous actions of the Pharisees and Romans.
This is the victory of life over death.
And the fate of the Light.
