Increasingly emboldened.

The disciples seemed to have managed to get on the confidence curve and find a way of trusting more and more the tomb’s emptiness meant Jesus was among them, alive and well.

There’s the locked door episode a little earlier on (and a possible passage this week, too) but resurrection takes a while to get into the blood. It takes quite a bit to build the confidence and trust in something that is impossible. But the disciples got there.

I want to know their secret.

But isn’t it interesting to see how you see the world when you’ve got resurrection in the  blood? For example the flogging is a mark of honour rather than what the world deems it to be (just like the cross becomes the gate of freedom rather than the throne of death).

What dare we see now we’re on this side of the resurrection? What might we be willing to reinterpret in the light of empty tombs? What might our emboldened faith open up to us now we can see with eyes that have envisioned resurrection?
