John 20

I so quickly forget the wonder of the resurrection. The shock of Mary, the wonder of the others, the doubt of Thomas all would be part of my reaction, no doubt, if I were there.

The order of things here seems different than in the other gospels. Mary sees the empty tomb, then she runs to get the others, the Peter and John come, then she sees the angel.

I love the footrace between John and Peter, and that John makes sure we know he wins! The detail about the displacement of the cloths is also an interesting one.

The summary statement for the book is great. Jesus did more than this. I wrote so you would believe and believing you would have life. This is book is a presentation of the gospel.
