Special Easter 2019 Edition
Sam Gamgee: “Gandalf! I thought you were dead! But then I thought I was dead myself. Is everything sad going to come untrue?“
The resurrection is the answer to Sam Gamgee’s question. Yes, everything sad is going to come untrue…
Jesus said to Martha, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?’
. . . [The Messiah] is the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent.
Jesus is the resurrection and the life, the beginning of the new creation, and because of that one day everything sad is going to come untrue. “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.
