Recognizing Jesus

Chapter Talks

‘Faith and Recognition’: could these two words together encapsulate what the Easter season calls us to?  From the second Sunday after Easter where we have the appearance before Thomas whose weak faith takes a huge leap when he recognizes Jesus in and through his wounds.  We recognize through hearing and we recognize through seeing.  Many of the resurrection gospels show us this: ‘They recognized him through the breaking of the bread’.  When the risen One says ‘Mary’ at the tomb, Mary Magdalene, through the voice calling her name, suddenly recognizes the person standing before her as Jesus.
