"Christ Our Eternal Joy Is Risen!  and Death is No More!  ALLELUIA!"

  John 20: 19-31

ThomasWhen it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you.’ 20After he said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. 21Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.’ 22When he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. 23If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.’

  1. In the firm belief I believe we have the right and the duty to know where our information comes from and just who is teaching us, before we decide to accept anything or everything ... I reveal to my readers that this is a heterodox website, the owner is a hard core Protestant,
    http://www.progressiveinvolvement.com/progressive_involvement/2018/04/easter-2-john-20-19-31.html

    Website owner describes himself:
    My theology is neo-orthodox trinitarian theology of the cross with a Christus Victor view of atonement.

    NEO-ORTHODOX?

    I can tell something is not right even before knowing the writer is non-Orthodox.

    Example: the shallow meaning of peace from Christ. "An antidote to fear"
    Example: "The wounds are now healed and glorified"
    Example: "Moreover, 'blood and water' are reminiscent of birth."
    Example: "The disciples are given power from the divine breath."
    Example: "Thomas...throw himself into the very wound which gave birth to the church."

    Had enough yet?

    Orthodox Sacraments are glaringly missing and the author stretches almost out of the atmosphere to find a deeper meaning without considering the sacraments or the Church which contains them.

    What is interesting is the Greek meanings of the words. I did not know that "faith" was a verb. But this knowledge does not add anything to my Orthodox understanding of faith. Same with the other facts I did not know, -- interesting, but nothing that would increase my love for God. Unlike our grace-filled Church fathers whose writings bring us closer to God.
