JOY FROM THE RESURRECTION

UNDAILY Episode 98


So, the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,”he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.” While the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the city and reported to the chief priests everything that had happened. When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money, telling them, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came during the night and stole him away while we were asleep.’ If this report gets to the governor, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” So, the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the Jews to this very day.


MATTHEW 28, 8-15 (NIV)


"In the beginning, there was fear..." Two women, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary, faced with the empty tomb, were initially enveloped in terror. Their reaction is naturally understandable. After all, the life they knew had crumbled. Their Master, friend, and teacher - had been killed. And now, His body had disappeared. What could be more terrifying? However, when the Angel tells them, "Do not be afraid," and when they meet the resurrected Jesus, who repeats these words, their fear transforms into joy. This is not just any superficial joy, like the grin of satisfaction from catching a spring sale. It is a feeling deep and completely permeating both the physical and the spiritual being. Christ lives, and the prophecies have been fulfilled. How powerful is this message! It's not just about victory over death, but victory over everything that limits us, paralyzes us, and makes us lose hope.
