On this Easter Sunday today’s read is from Scott Powell who has been Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute since 2010, after a six year affiliation with Stanford’s Hoover Institution. Here’s an excerpt:
There are many religions of the world going back thousands of years. But only one of them, Christianity, has a founder who professed to be the Messiah—the son of God—who provided irrefutable proof of who He was by conquering death through resurrection.
It turns out that Easter, which has its ultimate meaning in the resurrection, is one of ancient history’s most carefully scrutinized and best-attested events. The resurrection is real, and changes everything. Easter is the commemoration and celebration of the single event that transformed the world forever.

From Jack Kerwick, a professor of philosophy at several colleges and universities in New Jersey and Pennsylvania:
Consider: As if in the blink of an eye, Jesus goes from sharing a holiday meal—His final meal (“The Last Supper”)—with his closest friends to being arrested by his enemies.
The next day, on Good Friday, he would be tried, mocked, betrayed, humiliated, beaten, and executed.
And all of this happened within less than 24 hours.
This one’s a few days late but is a fascinating read, an excerpt of a private revelation of the death of Jesus Christ by Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824), a Catholic mystic. Emmerich was instructed by church authorities to write down her revelations and they were compiled into a book upon which the popular movie The Passion of the Christ was based.
