TO LEARN MORE ABOUT JESUS' LIFE, CONSIDER MARY'S
RESURRECTION WAS PROOF OF WHAT SHE HAD KNOWN: HER SON WAS DIVINE
Even though Easter has come and gone, I wanted to find a way to celebrate the resurrection of the Son of God everyday and in a more intimate than before.
I picked up my Bible and began poring through the New Testament Scriptures about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.
Unexpectedly, the person who leapt out at me in the passages was Mary.
How did Mary feel about the baby Jesus, who had been prophesied to save the world?
It isn't farfetched to be intrigued by Mary when trying to understand and appreciate Jesus intimately.
Jesus was born in the audience of animals and some fortunate shepherds and to bewildered parents who witnessed divinity emerging from a teenager's womb.
As Mary stood at the cross of her dying son, she must have remembered those moments and what the prophet Simeon told her when the couple took the baby to the temple.
"A sword shall surely pierce through your soul also, that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed" (Luke 2:35).
Jesus as a child must have had a favorite bedtime story, toy and playmate, with no one but a few like Mary noticing that he was the growing image of the invisible God.
She'd probably wiped his runny nose, kissed his scraped knee and removed splinters from the fingers of the budding carpenter, knowing all the time that he was assigned to be the bishop of many souls.
Jesus performed his first miracle for Mary, turning water into wine, and I'm sure Mary must have heard about him giving sight to the blind, feeding multitudes and raising Lazarus from the dead.
In looking at Mary's part in the story, I believe a strange mixture of grief and joy flooded her heart as Jesus spoke to her and the disciple from the cross (John: 19:26-27).
To Mary, he said, "Woman, behold thy son."
To the disciple, "Behold your mother."
Then, the disciple led Mary away.
Soon the Messiah, also known as the living water, would profess that he was thirsty (John 21:28).
The walk from the cross must have been hard for Mary, watching the carpenter who had put away his hammer and nails to be nailed to the cross of the world's convictions.
After Jesus rose from the dead, there is no scriptural reference to a conversation between mother and son, but we were given a front-row seat to salvation, learning what Mary knew from the beginning.
It is the biggest detail of God's divine rescue mission, that he rose again.
From that point, no one could say that God did not understand and love his creations.
He rose again, and God stepped from behind the veil and introduced himself more intimately than before.
Mary knew that the nails did not hold Jesus on the cross; love did.
He did not die and rise again for the world's glory; he was and still is the world's glory.
He rose again because he wanted us to know that through him, nothing is impossible for those who believe.
