Sunday Walk 35 – Easter

αναστας δε πρωι πρωτη σαββατου εφανη πρωτον μαρια τη μαγδαληνη αφ ης εκβεβληκει επτα δαιμονια

Mark 16:9 Textus Receptus with various translations

Mario Murillo described a woman who was once demon possessed and sold on the streets in “Mary Magdalene on the Day Jesus Died”. After Jesus cast out her demons she followed Him. Then came the crucifixion.

And then came the power of the resurrection.

In his Easter blog post this morning Mario Murillo wrote, “Easter is not polite. It is fire!  It is not about bunnies or eggs, and it has no place among the other harmless religious holidays.”

The resurrection separates Easter from other religious holidays. That resurrection is the assurance of the coming judgement.

διοτι εστησεν ημεραν εν η μελλει κρινειν την οικουμενην εν δικαιοσυνη εν ανδρι ω ωρισεν πιστιν παρασχων πασιν αναστησας αυτον εκ νεκρων

Acts 17:31 Textus Receptus with various translations

Geri Ungurean linked to this song in a recent post.

An Easter Hallelujah
Reminder: There is more going on with the Resurrection of Jesus than New Age sentiment about the rising sun
