- William H. Willimon - "The Downside of a Resurrection" (March 17, 2002)
Sermon start time: 05:25. Sermon end time: 25:51.
Jesus was nailed to a cross right after he resurrected Lazarus from the dead. The religious establishment could not imagine such power came from an ordinary man, so they killed him. This mentality is still true nowadays. We kill the faith in God when we see mysteries and glories of God shown in the midst of ordinary life. People rather believe in the omnipotent power of death than God’s power of resurrection. (Abstract created by Duke Divinity School staff.)
Key quotation: “It is odd how frightening resurrection can be. “Once new life is handed to us, the ball is back in our court.”
