Hanli Liu

Hanli Liu speaks on the startling and wondrous resurrection of the Lord Jesus from this passage. What we see so clearly through John's eye-witness testimony is that Jesus was truly dead and buried after his resurrection. All of the disciples knew this - none of them expected Jesus to return from the dead. This was true of the very first witness - Mary Magdalene - who mistook the risen Jesus for a gardener when she first saw him! All because she was only looking for a dead Lord, and thus missed the living Lord! When Jesus revealed himself to her, she was overwhelmed by the undeniable reality that Jesus had been raised from the grave. She was tasked to share the news with the rest of the disciples - her words were so simple: "I have seen the Lord". 

We too come into contact with the risen and living Lord Jesus through reading their eye-witness testimony. John explicitly says that these things were written so that we too might believe in Jesus and thus have life in him (John 21:31). When we believe in Jesus Christ, we too will share in his glorious resurrection, free from death forevermore. Have you believed in the crucified and resurrected Lord?
