Happy Easter

Here’s something you may not know. In one of our earliest traditions on belief in the resurrection, Paul writes:

  • 3 For I handed on to you as of first importance what I in turn had received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures 4 and that he was buried and that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. (1 Cor 15: 3-7)

Did you catch that? Paul says the resurrection was something done to Jesus, not something Jesus did. In other words, the early Christians who believed this thought God and Jesus were not the same person.

Enjoy those Easter Eggs!
