JOHN 20:1-31, 11:25, ROM 6:4 | MAR 2-3 | STEVE GILLEN
The tomb is empty. His followers are stunned. Then Mary
Magdalene sees him, followed by most of the disciples,
and finally, Thomas. The crestfallen, the terrified, and the
incredulous have all become convinced: Jesus has risen!
John makes his intentions clear. He’s shared this story so
“that you may believe... and by believing you may have
life.” For all of those who, like Mary, cry out “I have seen
the Lord!” baptism is a symbol of the resurrection that has
occurred in our own lives.
