2ND SUNDAY OF EASTER
We can’t believe our eyes anymore. When we watch the weather report on TV, all those charts and numbers aren’t really there. The weather reporter is standing in front of a blank green wall. At the movie theater, CGI (computer generated imagery) continues to numb our senses. From the dinosaurs of “Jurassic Park” to Forrest Gump standing next to President Kennedy, today’s technology creates worlds that aren’t really there, like Pandora, James Cameron’s virtual world in the 2009 blockbuster “Avatar”.
If Jesus were to appear to us today, as he did in the upper room on the day of his resurrection, we would probably be like Thomas. We might doubt our eyes. We would need to have more proof. Jesus blessed those who believed without seeing, and challenges us to do the same.
