In all the Gospels, the Disciples’ encounters with the resurrected Jesus have a common theme: skepticism. In today’s Gospel lesson Jesus doesn’t try to reason with the Disciples, instead he allows them to experience their resurrected teacher. Encountering Jesus in the everyday experience of their life helps them move from skepticism to trust. In today’s world we may be even more skeptical than the Disciples, having learned to be distrustful through countless interaction with scammers seeking to take advantage of our trust. So how do we overcome our skepticism? In the same way: encountering the Risen Christ. While we don’t sit down to a meal with Jesus, we do interact with our neighbors & friends in moments of caring, listening, forgiveness, and joy that are reflections of Resurrection.
