Journey Through John - I Have Seen the Lord
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.
