John 20:9-18

“I heard an old, old story, how a Savior came from glory…” So begins the words of an old Gospel chorus. The Easter story is in fact an old, old story in the sense that it took place nearly two thousand years ago, but there is another sense in which the story should never grow old to us. The reality is that the story does grow old for some in that they can recount the details of the events that took place but fail to be moved by the significance of what happened. What’s needed today is not a new and improved story, but a rediscovery of this old, old story.
