Happy Easter 2019

I want to wish all of the readers of this blog a happy Easter! Since we have been looking at the beloved disciple in the previous posts, here are just a few more examples about how the beloved disciple is a model of faith and perceptiveness in the light of Easter:

Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen wrappings lying there, and the cloth that had been on Jesus’ head, not lying with the linen wrappings but rolled up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple, who reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed” (John 20:6-8 NRSV)

“Just after daybreak, Jesus stood on the beach; but the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to them, ‘Children, you have no fish, have you?’ They answered him, ‘No.’ He said to them, ‘Cast the net to the right side of the boat, and you will find some.’ So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in because there were so many fish. That disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, ‘It is the Lord!'” (John 21:4-7 NRSV)
