About Today Readings

Easter Tuesday

Acts 2:36-41. The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord – Psalm 32(33):4-5, 18-20, 22. John 20:11-18.

Do you recognise Jesus?

It can seem peculiar that people close to Jesus failed to recognise him after his resurrection. Mary Magdalene thought Jesus was a gardener when she saw him outside the tomb, even though she had just sighted two angels inside it. Maybe Jesus’ transcendental state was to blame, or maybe the events of that day were just too much for Mary in her grieving state. Or maybe there’s more of a message to it than that. Maybe the failure of Jesus’ disciples to recognise him in his risen form says more about them that it does about him. Have you failed to recognise the presence of Jesus at different times in your life? Is so, what can you do to accept him? The Psalms say the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord, all you must do is search for it.
