Atonement | Christ | Death | Remembering | Resurrection | Risk | Suffering

If God raised Jesus from the dead, why didn’t God fix him up? Why scars? Why the print of nails that you could feel with your fingers? Can it be that the Gospel word is saying to us in our waiting: “You will not see Jesus Christ unless you see the wounds?” That somehow we must understand that the resurrected Christ is forever the wounded Christ? Living, but never fixed up. Not bound by death, yet scarred for eternity. The deaf have a sign for Jesus. Quickly they make this sign many times during their worship: the middle finger of each hand is placed into the palm of the other. Jesus, the one with wounded hands. And when they touch the place, they remember. They hear the name in their own flesh. John Vannorsdall, Sermons From The Lutheran series
