Easter Community: an excerpt from Sunday By Sunday

Sunday’s Easter scene preserves a snapshot of the original Christian community, small and intimate. It includes the eleven, Jesus’ mother, Mary Magdalene, and other people who have followed Jesus. They have accompanied Jesus to Jerusalem and witnessed him heal and teach.

This Easter community has no pastor, committees, governance, or finance reports – yet. The group encounters Jesus face to face, risen and present. Jesus knows their feelings and needs; he brings them peace and process for handling their conflicts.

  1. There were a minimum of three women, correct? Possibly more? And at least two were named, maybe three. I see this as a statement of their status as disciples. We need to speak of these women as full disciples.
