The accounts of the resurrection are stories about seeing and not seeing, about what is covered and what is uncovered.

In the Gospel of John, Mary Magdalene encounters the risen Jesus outside of the tomb but thinks he is simply a caretaker.

That same Gospel concludes with a story of seven disciples going fishing. After spending the night catching nothing, they look toward the shore. John says that “Jesus stood on the beach; but the disciples did not know that it was Jesus.”

And then there is that beautiful story of Easter evening from the Gospel of Luke—two people walk along the road with a stranger, talking about all that has happened in recent days. We know they are walking with the risen Christ—but they do not recognize him.

The risen Christ is eclipsed.

Scripture Lessons: Deuteronomy 30:11-14; Luke 24:13-35

Sermon: “The Eclipse of the Christ”
