Easter Sunday – Three Types of Seeing at the Empty Tomb of Jesus…

Empty TombHappy Easter to you all! May the Risen Christ shine the Light of his glory upon you!

Today, I recommend, for your edification and deeper understanding, this video homily by noted biblical scholar Sandra Schneiders, IHM. I find her insights invigorating and substantial… just as when I was her student (a few years back!) at the Jesuit School of Theology, Berkeley, CA).

She describes how John’s use of three Greek verbs reveals three modes of ‘seeing’ in Mary of Magdala, Simon Peter, and the beloved disciple. In this way, Sandra establishes for us a frame within which to pray with the disciples and the risen Christ over the next weeks.

Be blessed! –roc,sj
