Week 5 of a six-week series Lost and Found. He is Risen! He is Risen indeed! Alleluia! Encountering the empty tomb leads to perplexity and amazement, cynicism and unbelief for the disciples and well as for us. We have so many questions when it comes to death and resurrection. Mary Magdalene and the other women, discover the tomb, where they laid the dead Jesus, was now open and empty. Peter saw it too. How were they to comprehend all of this? How were they logically to process what an empty tomb meant? It seemed impossible, perplexing, incomprehensible. There must be some rational, logical explanation for this empty tomb.
In this six-week series, we continue to explore how the promises of God are fulfilled in the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus through the lens of the Gospel of Luke. We look at some of the parables of Jesus as well as his death and resurrection. These stories are mixed with immense grief, loss, celebration and joy. We discover that the very character of the Triune God is about restoration and reconciliation of relationships. For what has been lost has been found.
