Easter Tuesday

Lectionary

Morning - Ps. 30, Daniel 12:1-13, 1 Thessalonians 4:13
Evening - Ps115, Isaiah 30:18-21, John 20:11-18

Commentary, John 20:11-18

"A dead Christ might have been a Teacher and Wonder-worker, and remembered and loved as such. But only a Risen and Living Christ could be Saviour, the Life, and the Life-Giver - and as such preached to all men.  And of this most blessed truth we have the fullest and most unquestionable evidence.  We can, therfore, implicitly yield ourselves to the impression of these narratives, and, still more, to the realisation of that most sacred and blessed fact.  This is the foundation of the Church, the inscription on the banner of her armies, the strength and comfort of every Christian heart, and the grand hope of humanity: 'The Lord is risen indeed.'"
                        
The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah.  by Anglican clergyman Alfred Edersheim
