People of the Resurrection (Rom 6:5-10)

Curtis BakerBy: Curtis Baker

With Easter fast approaching, much of the Christian world this week is focused on the last week of Jesus’ life, leading up to the climactic moment of his resurrection from the dead. It would not be too large a statement to say that the resurrection is the very foundation of the Christian faith. Without it, Jesus would have simply been another prophet with a moral message. But with it, he is the very Son of God who has now been tasked by the Father to reign over the whole cosmos as the world’s one true Lord. Everyone is faced with a choice because of Jesus’ resurrection. Either one accepts his Lordship, and strives to bring their life in accord with that reality…or they reject his Lordship, and continue to live their life as if their will is the most important thing in the universe. Paul is clear in Romans chapter 6 that one of these states of life is congruent with slavery, while the other is a resurrected and new kind life.

Holy Thursday

HOLY THURSDAY is the most complex and profound of all religious observances, saving only the Easter Vigil. It celebrates both the institution by Christ himself of the Eucharist and of the institution of the sacerdotal priesthood (as distinct from the ‘priesthood of all believers’) for in this, His last supper with the disciples, a celebration of Passover, He is the self-offered Passover Victim, and every ordained priest to this day presents this same sacrifice, by Christ’s authority and command, in exactly the same way. The Last Supper was also Christ’s farewell to His assembled disciples, some of whom would betray, desert or deny Him before the sun rose again. From Catholic Online – Click Here
