About the resurrection...
The difference of the resurrection is dramatically demonstrated by the reactions of the people closest to Jesus. In chapter 20, John tells of three encounters that the resurrected Jesus had with his friends.
Early resurrection morning, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb with some other women. The body was gone. Someone had taken it. She stood outside the tomb and cried. This indignity on top of his death broke her heart. While she was distressed, Jesus appeared to her and called her by name, "Mary." When she recognized Jesus, her grief and anger immediately turned to joy. She never expected him be standing there!!! Jesus turned grief to joy in the most unexpected way. His ways are not our ways. He often surprises us with joy.

That evening, the disciples had locked themselves in a home. They we're afraid. They did not want to die at the hands of the Jews, too. Jesus simply appeared in the locked room. He bade them "Peace" and showed them his crucifixion scars. Their fear turned to joy. At the sight of Jesus, their fear melted away. If Jesus has control over death, we have no reason to fear either. That is why scripture says so many times, "Do not fear."
Thomas was not present that evening. So, he doubted. He went so far as to say that he would not believe until he touched the hands and side of the crucified Jesus. A week later, Jesus appeared to Thomas and showed him his scars. Thomas believed and proclaimed, "My Lord and my God!" Like Thomas, we all doubt. Like Thomas, our faith in the resurrection carries us through our doubt. Because of the resurrection, we can boldly proclaim that Jesus is "My Lord and my God!"
The Easter resurrection changes everything. We can be confident that Jesus is Lord. Like these friends of Jesus, we do not have to grieve or fear or doubt. After all, we are Easter people.
