Easter 2012

This is our fifth Easter post here at W4. Over the years we have had poetry and art work. Here are the four Easter posts from 2008-2011.

While I generally shy away from sweeping statements, this one is true: Easter is the most important day in the Christian year. The sign given by God in the resurrection was meant to be the sign by which all men could know that Jesus Christ was God and that his message was true. By means of the resurrection God witnessed that Jesus was the Messiah whom the prophets had foretold and that forgiveness was to be preached to all men through his name. The disciples got started on that on the day of Pentecost, and they did not waver in their mission as eye-witnesses of his resurrection, no matter what persecutions and threats they encountered.

T.S. Eliot spoke of "the point of intersection of the timeless with time." Christians do use the word "mystery" for such moments, moments when eternity and time touch. But it is important, when the mystery in question is a miracle, that we not take "mystery" to mean "something you must believe in unjustifiedly." In fact, the whole point of a miracle is to give you a reason to believe. Christianity connects the prose and the passion.

In that vein, here are some new links. Tim McGrew has begun a series of lectures that is being gradually put on Youtube, with Powerpoint slides for the video. In case you haven't seen/heard them, here they are:

Part 1: Who Wrote the Gospels?
Part 2: External Evidence for the Truth of the Gospels and Acts
Part 3: Internal Evidence for the Truth of the Gospels

And if you'd like something short, a fifteen minute interview from last week on the resurrection with a New Zealand radio program.

A blessed and joyous Easter to all our readers at W4!
