DevottomlJ l~sdiug: I Corinthians 15: 14-99. il f J Our"v'. r'i JESUS CHRIST is not a histori- cal character in the same way that most such characters are. For historical characters are by definition figures out of the past. Whether the revived character, or the "image" of him that is now cherished, resembles the original man or not, still the historical ch~ract6r ~ al- ways a dead-and- gone character. But Jesus Christ is radically dif- ferent. He is not dead - and - gone. He did die, to be sure; but he rose again from the Dr. Foreman dead, as millions of Christians will be saying and singing this Easter morning. Yet this is not the last word about him. His rising-again in Joseph's garden was far away and long ago. The strange and most significant truth about Jesus Christ's resurrection is that he has risen over and over again--in the hearts of those who love him. despair.

Was Thomas an exception? On the face of it, Thomas was an unbeliever, yet Jesus appeared to him. Wait a moment--let us straighten this out. Thomas was (he said) an un- believer in the resurrection, but he was a believer in Christ. He believed enough to be there with the disciples the Sunday after Easter. He was ready to believe, readier than he thought, as the ~tory shows. He had doubts, yet "e was still in heart a disciple. ~o the living Lord to this day ..urns doubts into faith--it hap- pens somewhe~ every day of the ~orld. From Sorrow to Joy Jesus Christ is a living person, our contemporary, one with whom we can speak in prayer and high moments of meditation. People outside the Christian religion do not always realize this, that Christ is as well as was,--that what he is and what he wants and what he ~pproves are questions to which we can find answers.
