Sorry, no Lectionary reflection this week

March 11, 2005

Just some preliminary thoughts on the raising of Lazarus:

  • We are never so far gone that Jesus stops reaching out for us.
  • This “sign” becomes Jesus’ undoing. Many folks were too spiritually blind to see anything beyond a reason to kill him.
  • Here, the Empire of God becomes a real threat to the Empire of Rome.
  • Here, Jesus became a real threat to the institutional church and he remains so even today.
