TODAY we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. There are no comparable events in history.
Days before the body of Jesus went missing, Pontius Pilate, a Roman bureaucrat stuck between a rock and a hard place, looked at Jesus standing before him and asked: ‘’What is truth’’.
No answer to the question is recorded, because Jesus probably didn’t give one. He must have thought His life and imminent death were answers enough.
Not that many understood it at the time. Even his disciples were confused. Why did He have to die?
Why didn’t he conquer the Romans and establish His kingdom on Earth? Why didn’t He just comes to the planet and say, “I love you and if you want, I’ll forgive you and you can live with Me in Heaven when you die.”
It was never going to be that easy. The grace we live in didn’t come cheap.
