Living in Light of the Resurrection - John 21
Written by John Tsang   
Wednesday, 26 April 2017 13:21


What might be surprising about Jesus’ post-resurrection appearances is how He met the disciples in very simple and ordinary ways. The final chapter of John centered on Jesus’ appearance to a group of seven disciples, on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, having a simple breakfast meal of bread and fish. Emily Dickinson, the writer, once said, "The truth must dazzle gradually, or every person be blind."


There are many nuances to the way that John told the story. For example, the coal fire is the same word used for the fire in 18:18 where the officials and servants gathered around a fire in Peter’s first denial. Peter and the group returned to their former way of life, fishing. It was something that they were familiar with. The setting at the Sea of Galilee is poetically familiar; this was where Peter was initially called to follow Jesus (Luke 5:1-11). And once again, the disciples initially did not recognize Jesus.

So That You May Believe - John 20

John began the resurrection story in chapter 20 by noting that it was the first day of the week and while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb. She saw that the stone covering the tomb was removed so she ran to get Peter and the beloved disciple (most commentators believe that the nameless beloved disciple is John, the author of the Gospel). Upon seeing the empty tomb John believed (20:8)


Then, Mary had a personal encounter with the risen Jesus 20:11-18. At first, Mary thought that Jesus was the gardener. When Jesus called Mary by her name, she instantly recognized that it was the Lord and Mary believed (20:16).

A Different Kind of King - John 18
Written by John Tsang

After the High Priestly Prayer in John 17, Jesus crossed the Kidron Valley with the disciples into the Garden of Gethsemane. There, Jesus prayed to the Father alone. The agonizing time of prayer was interrupted by Judas and a group of Temple police who came to arrest Jesus. Why did Judas betray Jesus? There are theories which suggest that Judas was trying to force Jesus into being the kind of political leader and king who would lead a rebellion to overthrow the Roman Empire. But it became apparent that Jesus’ kingdom was not one of violence and power but one of love and sacrifice.


The other prominent disciple in this part of the Passion story is of course, Peter. Three times Peter denied he was associated with Jesus. Why would all the Gospels include this story of one of the most important leader in the early Church? Perhaps it serves as a warning for me to stay humble and not to be over confident of my devotion to God.
