April 3, Second Sunday of Easter: John 20:19-31

To ask a question is to risk an answer. Sometimes we don’t like the answer we receive. In Thomas’s case, though, the real risk is in success.

March 27, Easter Sunday: 1 Corinthians 15:19-26; Luke 24:1-12

Luke grounds the resurrection narrative in tangible details: the rock-hewn tomb, the linen cloth, the heavy stone, the fragrant spices. The reader can imagine the place and time. Then things fall off the map.

March 25, Good Friday: John 18:1-19:42

There are many reasons to deny Jesus, and we all have one. 

March 24, Maundy Thursday: Exodus 12:1-4, (5-10), 11-14; John 13:1-17, 31b-35

Slaughtering animals, washing feet—I can smell the rooms in both Exodus and John.
