In rejecting Jesus at Passover time, they had involved themselves in something bigger than they knew. They should repent, therefore, not just from complicity in Jesus’ death, but in response to the call to conversion that was the thrust of Jesus' public life.
John Kavanaugh, SJ
This is a Jesus of sight and sound, of memories and relationships, of love and tenderness. He would take food and allow himself to be touched. Even his wounds could be examined.
John J. Pilch
Experiences of alternate reality opened the minds of prophets and others in the Old Testament to understanding the will of God with greater clarity and precision; the experience of the risen Jesus accomplishes the same result for those who see him.
