Episode notes

Easter is a time of reversals, the cross becomes the empty tomb, death becomes life. In his gospel, John shows Thomas' doubt turning into faith, the disciples' fear into courage, Mary's sorrow into joy. But it's not a story of such life-changing reversals only for those long ago. The same God does this Easter-shaped, god-inspired work all of the time in the lives of the greatest skeptics, the people that are full of fear and the lives that are full of sorrow. Easter good news continues today. Jesus rose from the dead and because so countless lives have been transformed throughout history and even today.
