After the resurrection Jesus met with his friends again. They must have thought that all that had ended; they had hoped he was going to do something really significant, then he fell foul of religious authorities of their people, then the political leaders and all this resulted in his death. This was the end of everything. But it wasn`t, Jesus rose from death; he did do something really significant, more significant than had ever been done before.
We believe he rose again never to die again, and furthermore, we will rise again after we die. This will be the most significant thing that will ever happen to us. Today we rejoice because Jesus came and promised us eternal life; it makes a huge difference. Even amidst the difficulties of Covid there is reason to rejoice.
