John: Risen, For What?

John 20:11-18

“He is risen!” “He is risen indeed!” Those seven words will be uttered (among the English speaking world, at least!) by countless brothers and sisters in Christ this Sunday morning. You may even hear them around CCC! They’re intended to be echoes of the words of the first eye-witness of the resurrection nearly two thousand years ago, and they’re just as true today as they were then. As we worship together on Sunday, we’ll be in John 20:11-18, seeing Jesus make His first appearance to Mary Magdalene and hearing from His own lips what He was raised in order to do.
