You have to hunt for the message of Easter. After
all, this is not the joyous welcoming of a baby with the giving of gifts; this
is the brutal death of a young man, stripped of any gifts and dignity. Yet,
Jews had prayed for him, hoped for him, looked for him and lived for him for
generations. But now the one who said he was Messiah was dead, killed by the
very ones who had for so long anticipated his coming. How could this have
happened? His disciples had spent 3 years following him. and
here they were in despair - but then they found the empty tomb. James Boice,
one of the church’s master communicators, explains the drama, purpose and
events surrounding Easter so that it can become an occasion of spiritual joy.
