Easter II John 20:19-31. “Peace Be With You”

As we read this scripture with rational thinking (in our head), we look for the evidence of the resurrection. We go right on to the following words, “after he said this, he showed them his hands and his side.” This is the physical evidence we are looking for. With Spiritual understanding, you have to be quick for this one or it will go right past your heart and up and over to your head. This is the Jesus way.  Read more
