Beloved, there are many who deny the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Even some so called Priests, Pastors and Spiritual leaders deny that Christ has risen from the dead. On a Resurrection Sunday a few years ago one of those pastors even proposed that Jesus had not died but had merely passed out and was later revived. It is called the swoon theory.
A humorous letter to the editor to a Christian magazine accurately evaluated the "Swoon Theory":
Dear Eutychus: Our preacher said, on Easter, that Jesus just swooned on the cross and that the disciples nursed Him back to health. What do you think? Sincerely, Bewildered.
Dear Bewildered: Beat your preacher with a cat-of-nine-tails with 39 heavy strokes, nail him to a cross; hang him in the sun for 6 hours; run a spear through his heart; embalm him; put him in an airless tomb for 36 hours and see what happens. Sincerely, Eutychus.
Beloved, today we celebrate the Resurrection of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is Risen! Jesus is Alive!
