Sermons about Resuscitation
What happens when we die? That is an interesting question on a number of levels, and in some real ways we don’t know all that much about what happens after death. The vast majority of New Testament passages that deal with life after death typically make reference to the resurrection of the body on the last day. Yet, there are items that point to other understandings, like Jesus telling the thief on the cross with him that today he would be with him in paradise. Some passages seem to indicate an immediate presence with God after death, some seem to point to a time of waiting before entering God’s presence. It can make the whole subject a bit difficult to track clearly. Today’s text deals with issues of healing, death and resuscitation. I say resuscitation and not resurrection because resurrection has implications well beyond just living again, it means being like Jesus post resurrection, passing through solid objects, like walls and tombs, and yet enjoying a meal with friends, and still at other times being with people and then vanishing before their eyes. Our text deals with two women, or one woman and a young girl to be precise, both ill and one dies.
