Okay, I get it, resurrections are scary! I mean, What do you do with someone who is supposed to be dead and you saw them die with your own eyes? Mary cried in fear in the garden, the Apostles hid in fear behind closed locked doors. And even when Jesus appeared to them, Thomas doubted that he was real. This is a life changing event and it was difficult for those early Jesus believers to get a handle on how to go forward with a resurrected Lord. Jesus had to remind Peter three times to feed and take care of his sheep and give up fishing for good and he told all his disciples that they were to take message to all the world, preaching, teaching and baptizing in HIS name. Then, Jesus told the disciples to go to Jerusalem and wait there for the Holy Spirit to empower them to know how to live and work without Him when he returned to heaven. In other words, the disciples had to figure out every day how to live as if Easter really matters. Jesus is Alive, now what do they say and do that shows the Risen Christ as a part of their lives.
