Josh walks us through the Easter story from John 20, and we are again faced with the question: "Is this story true?" We see Mary who was certain that Jesus was dead and weeping that this journey was over. Then, Jesus calls her by name, and she understands what is happening and goes to share this gospel with the disciples. John had run to the tomb and paused outside before entering, but when he stepped in and looked around, he believed. We see John embrace the reality that Jesus is risen. We see Mary embody the gospel when she runs to tell the disciples that she has seen the Lord. We partake in the gift of faith with them. John 20:1-18.
