It's common in our modern, scientific age to think of the resurrection as nothing more than a wonderful symbol of hope and renewal. The problem is, our deepest longings are for more than just a symbol of love, justice, goodness, beauty, and truth. We long for the real thing! We want more than just a metaphor or symbol. We want a truly healed world. Amazingly, if we learn to understand what the resurrection really means, we can actually find it. This passage shows us how.
